This 200-acre park was donated to Douglas County by Ms. Annie Mae Clinton. The park is required by Ms. Clinton’s will to remain in its natural state as much as possible. The park contains nature trails and open exploration areas.


A half-mile walking track encircles the Junior League Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) accessible playground, the first of its kind in Douglas County.

Carnes Cabin

Located just a one-mile hike into the woods is the Carnes Cabin, a pre-Civil War residence, that is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.


The park is open seven days a week during daylight hours.
