Lions Club Park


Elevation: 1373 ft.

This park, also known as New Castle Town Park, is the perfect stop for a picnic or to stretch your legs between some of the larger Trail sites. The brushy woodland along the rear of the park supports a variety of wildflowers, insects, birds and other wildlife. Careful exploration of the park could produce jewelweed, chicory, Queen Anne’s lace and cardinal flower. These flowers are frequently patrolled by hummingbird hawk-moths and ruby-throated hummingbirds, which often chase each other in the competition for nectar. The park also supports familiar woodland birds, such as downy woodpecker, blue jay and Carolina wren. Cedar waxwing have reportedly nested in the large cedars in the park.
