Named for the end moraine that was left behind when the Wisconsin Glacier retreated some 12,000 to 17,000 years ago, much of this Metro Park was once covered with farm lands.
In late summer and early fall, fields of beautiful aster, goldenrod and purple coneflower can be enjoyed in the south end of the park.
With help from Honda of America, Metro Parks has restored a 250-acre wetland area. Visitors can traverse a boardwalk through the wetlands or climb a 25-foot observation tower to see waterfowl and other animals. Teachers will want to bring their students to the outdoor classroom to explore the valuable role wetlands play in our lives.
Eleven miles of trails wind through the park.
