Stroll to the Narrows

Winter’s Quiet Bird Presence

Even though the winter woods are hushed, they’re still teeming with our feathered neighbors.

The Boar’s Head

Who invited those boars? Feral swine have earned a nasty reputation in our local woods.


Whether you want to tackle a mountain or sit by a stream, you’ll find just what you’re looking for here. This is a premier golf destination, but there’s so much more available. There are streams to fish, public pools and tennis courts to enjoy and playgrounds, too. Winter sports include ice skating, skiing, tubing and hiking.
