This covered bridge and the stream that flows under it combines for some great photo opportunities. Be careful on the rocks, they are slippery. It's an intimate community park that's great for decompressing. Enjoy!

We would come here all the time to this beautiful park to take family pictures. We have also been here for other events. They have a picnic area with grills and even a playground. We love this park!

Nice small park with a covered bridge and large stream. Nice place for photography, play time with kids, fishing, swimming (when warmer), picnics or just walking and enjoying nature. Covered or open picnic tables available. Swings and slides for the kids.

An authentic covered bridge with some history. You can park your car in the area and walk around. Not too far of a distance from civilization.

I am sorry but I don't know who bought that property if the state ever owned it. I just recently saw that the large piece of property within the Heardsville circle if going to be a subdivision later this year.
