This 10 acre park’s main purpose is to provide access to Gardner Lake.
In 1895, Thomas LeCount wanted to relocate his house, and chose to try pulling it across the lake in one piece instead of dismantling it. It slid into a snowbank and he couldn’t correct it without breaking the ice. He left it over night, planning to come back in the morning to fix it. However, during the night some of the lake was drained to power the nearby mill, causing the house to go through the ice, where it stayed until spring. For years the second story and attic stuck through the water.
Leashed dogs are permitted.
