Park
“Bayard Cutting Arboretum. Every season at the arboretum is beautiful. I call it the Hundred Acre Wood where Christopher Robin and Winnie the Pooh lived. Can take a walk along the river or many of the other trails. The Carriage house, at times, has concerts. There are art classes and artists display their works in the manor. The manor has a cafe and a wrap around porch. Tea parties by reservation are available in the Library of this beautiful manor. Many treasures to explore. ”
