John R. Park Homestead & Conservation Area reviews
The Maple Fest was great. Kids enjoyed watching the blacksmith, checking out the mill and sawing a log. The volunteers in their period costumes were very happy to answer any questions we had.
Went for the maple syrup festival and really enjoyed it. Very knowledgeable staff on hand to explain all the steps involved. Activities for the kids to try out too.
