Hackberry Park is home to the largest grouping of Hackberry trees in eastern Ontario.
The trees are believed to have been brought here by the indigenous peoples for medicinal qualities.
The park is excellent for enjoying peaceful nature, a nice picnic, or a good book. The park boasts a nice view of the dam.
