Fourth of July

We have a wonderful spot at Woodland Acres to enjoy the holiday and even see some distant fireworks, if any of the surrounding communities will have a display. We hope that you will join us as part of your celebration by picnicing and relaxing, but this is just a reminder that fireworks are not permitted on the Woodland Acres property. Thank you.

COVID-19 Precautions

 Woodland Acres is open! However, because of COVID-19 and the need to keep social-distancing, please please PLEASE call ahead for availability!! Even if you are coming out only for a picnic or a walk. We will need to carefully limit how many people are here at the same time to do our part to "flatten the curve". With your help and cooperation we can make sure that everyone that would like to enjoy the peace and refreshment of Woodland Acres will have the opportunity. Thank you for your understanding.
