Percy B Raynor Memorial Park

55 acres, with approx. 35 acres woodland; with remaining athletic fields

Behind the ballfields, westward, there's a lovely woodland, transitional between the wooded forests found along the North Shore and the open pine barrens. There's grassy opening of sedge and white oaks, with some pitch pines and even a white pine tree.  The property backs up on a utility power line where there are grasses and some woodies. 

Since 2017, there is an approved BMX trail to be placed in this woodland, but is on hold because of insurance questions.  Meanwhile, there is encroachment from adjacent residential housing with illegal dumping.
