At 4,900 acres, Elm Creek Park Reserve is the largest of Three Rivers' parks. This park features amenities for almost every outdoor activity, including the Winter Recreation Area, Eastman Nature Center, miles of hiking and biking trails, a swimming pond, and much more. Elm Creek is also home to a variety of wildlife such as eagles, sandhill cranes, deer, bluebirds, beavers, loons, Trumpeter Swans and hawks.
We take great care to preserve the natural beauty of this park through the efforts of our Natural Resources division. Volunteers are an important part of this work. Please contact us for opportunities in this or a variety of other volunteer-based roles.
