Overview
More
The Elizabethtown Nature Park (ENP) has 104 acres of gently rolling former pastureland. Freeman Creek meanders through the park as it flows to the city's largest lake, Freeman Lake. The Nature Park has been set aside as a passive park, where residents can enjoy the natural beauty of our community. A tunnel under Ring Road connects the ENP to Freeman Lake Park.

A calm slice of peacefulness minutes from anywhere in Etown. Walk, bike, run, or just sit on a bench. Along with the addition of the Vietnam Memorial Wall, this is the best place to decompress and reflect on life.

They dedicated an 80% full sized replica of the fantastic Vietnam Memorial in Washington, D.C. This will be a great addition to the Nature Park and will stir some strong emotions from nearly all visitors to this already great park atmosphere.

This park is a very peaceful place to walk. Not quite as picturesque as freeman lake, but a wonderful alternative with smaller crowds

I went here alone on a trip and had to bring my daughter to see it. I would love to see this done in our home area someday. Amazing.
