This historical location was then purchased in 1913 and turned into the park it is today to pay tribute to its historical significance. The park is 53 acres and open to the public!
If you love being outdoors hiking, playing golf, playing tennis, or simply for the views, make sure to visit Washington Valley Park during your trip in Bridgewater!
