From Jan. 8 - Jan. 31, this park will be closed every day (including weekends) for all purposes from 3 p.m. to midnight due to deer management sharpshooting activities.

​​Foxfire West is a 7-acre natural area that contains wetlands and a branch of the Traver Creek.  Adjacent to Olson Park, it provides an important habitat corridor for wildlife that depend on water, such as muskrat and ducks.  It also hosts a variety of wetland wildflowers that support butterflies.  Natural Area Preservation is restoring this area to improve habitat and reduce invasive species.
