Park Features

North Branch River Park extends along almost 3 quarters of a mile of river, with important wetlands and a rich diversity of wildlife. The park includes the following features:
  • A older stand of hemlocks that provide shelter for deer in the winter
  • Classic riparian buffer
  • Mixed stands
  • Nationally registered wetlands
  • Relatively young stands of hardwoods and softwoods
  • River shore
  • River
Additionally there are some unusual geological features including some sharp ridges, several small intermittent and year round streams. The wetlands are at the bottom of a long hillside and built up into a series of ponds by industrious beavers.
