Purchased by Rockaway Township for nearly $1 million in 1979, this park has picnic and playground facilities, a pavilion and opportunities for short walks. You can also investigate the three or four openings of the Denmark Mine. Although a quantity of ore was removed from some of them, the material contained large amounts of pyrite and was never mined.
In addition to the walk around the lake, more ambitious walkers will find a red tral that meets snake hill road about 100' West of the bridge and again, on Snake Hill road about 1 mile further west. The trail is about 3 miles long, but may require brook crossings that might be difficult in high water. If you don't like to cross streams, just bushwhack out until the trail returns. You will pass the Denmark Mine. Be sure not to trespass on private property.
