Welcome to Our Parks!
Welcome to our parks! Come see the two gems of York Township, Sandra Richardson and Mary McCann Parks. Through the efforts of donations, grants, and volunteers, the two parks are a go to destination when you want to get away from the hectic daily life routine. One can walk through the woods on a sunny winter’s day and enjoy the sunshine peeking down through the trees. Enjoy a walk on a summer’s day, listening to the wind as it blows through the aspen or oaks or maples and see the bounty of birds that have made the parks their home. In the spring time and fall, watch area teams as they compete in the game of soccer. Come especially in the fall when the trees are displaying their beautiful fall colors for all to see. Take a walk through the parks early in the morning and you might see a deer or other wildlife peeking at you through the brush.
The two parks offer different trails of scenic beauty on their own. Mary McCann Park offers scenic trails along with educational and many different settings of returning the land to its more natural growth through progressive plantings. Sandra Richardson offers many different aspects for one to see and explore. In both parks, one can catch a view of a prairie, filled with wild flowers in the summer, enjoy the quiet, restful environment of a deep woods walk, or explore the little more open areas and trails, all the while being outdoors and resting the soul.
Come see our parks! You’ll be pleasantly surprised.
