Additional Information
This park is a natural open space located on the west side of the City, south of Madison Street and east of Comanche Lane. It is surrounded on three sides by residential areas. This park is a geologic remnant of the Ice Age. The cone shaped kame is the result of glacial deposit activity. Entirely undeveloped, except for City sidewalk along Madison Street and Comanche Lane, this natural area consists of an oak opening and prairie grasses. The park will be maintained as a natural area site.


Potential Improvements Include


  • Control invasive plant species (i.e. Buckthorn, Honeysuckle)
  • Add park amenities (i.e. benches and tables)
