Special Park Rule

Fishing ponds are for youth 14 years or younger and persons with permanent disabilities who might not otherwise enjoy a fishing trip.

Jenni & Kyle Preserve

The Jenni & Kyle Preserve is a unique park that is intended to serve children and persons with disabilities. It offers accessible fishing and picnic areas, trails, wheelchair swings and a shelter building around two spring-fed ponds containing trout and panfish. The vision for the Jenni & Kyle Preserve began in 1989 with a donation from Harvey and Patricia Wilmeth as a memorial for their grandchildren, Jenni and Kyle, who both died at the age of 4 due to a degenerative neurological disorder.
