Site CRI01: Pole Green Park

Description

Pole Green Park is a multi-use facility with ballfields, picnic areas, playscapes, and community center. A one-mile loop nature trail meanders through the park's mixed woodlands. There are extensive additional trails for butterfly and bird watching. The edges of the forested trails are densely covered in an understory of holly and other shrubs. Woodland birds are numerous and can be easily seen making use of the food and cover provided by the underbrush and canopy. The newly planted butterfly garden attracts a diversity of colorful butterflies to the park.
