Fairy Spring's anniversary to celebrate 'insider's park'

(Continued)

Although the 5.7 acres of the park on the lake side is the part most frequented by visitors, Fairy Spring also includes 26 acres above the road.There is a trail through the woods that, although unmaintained, is great for hiking.

“That’s  very special, because it is truly undeveloped.” Tillapaugh said, “Not everybody knows about that part of the park.”

The park has a pavilion that was built as part of a 1930s Works Progress Administration project and is in need of repairs.

“It has a great, old cobblestone fireplace,” Tillapaugh said. “The big problem is that it is a big project to repair it. If we wanted to do something, we would have to get some grant funding. I have been on the lookout for a grant, but it seems like they are not available right now. I hope something will open up in the future.”
