This scenic village park provides a panoramic view of a widewater pool formed near the confluence of Branch Brook with the Salmon River. A check for southbound shorebirds in late summer may turn up Semipalmated Plover, Greater or Lesser Yellowlegs, Western Sandpiper, or even a rare Stilt Sandpiper, as well as numbers of the more common peeps. Some of the largest numbers of waterfowl recorded in Franklin County gather here, especially in fall, when as many as 10 thousand Snow Geese and a thousand or more Canada Geese gather in separate rafts. The only county sightings of Ross's Goose and the newly-recognized and now sought-after Cackling Goose, previously considered a smaller subspecies or race of the Canada, were made at this park. Scanning the waters with binoculars or scope may also turn up Redhead, White-winged Scoter, Black Scoter, or Bufflehead. Other waterbirds may vary from Pied-billed Grebe to Double-crested Cormorant.
