Harboring seven picnic shelters, a lake, horse arena, baseball diamond and sled hill, this 90 acre preserve attracts visitors year round. More than 2.5 miles of trails lead visitors through oak and maple woodlands. Bridges cross wetland areas and several ravines. Harris is spectacular in the spring when wildflowers carpet the forest floor. Whether its fishing in the summer, sledding in winter, or just enjoying a quiet walk through the woods, Harris has many wonderful recreational opportunities.
