LIBERTY-PARK-PLAYGROUND-TWINSBURG-0LIBERTY-PARK-PLAYGROUND-TWINSBURG-55My kids enjoyed playing on the playground. There is a smaller playground next to the larger playground for younger children. There are plenty of tunnels, climbing structures, and slides for all the kids to explore and play on. The size is a little on the small side for older kids. My second grader had fun but kids older than that might feel “too big”.

The Sugarbush trail breaks off into the 1.6 Buttonbush trail a moderate to easy 1 mile loop trail through the woods and swamp area. While we were there, it wasn’t too swampy but the trail extends between 2 large buttonbush swamps, partly covered with a boardwalk. BTW, Buttonbush is a flowering shrub that grows in the shallow water of swamps.

It reminds me very much of the Cuyahoga Valley National Park’s Kendall Ledges in Peninsula, Ohio.

The trail travels through wetlands on a long boardwalk and into a trail that leads to the ledges. There are a couple hills but nothing too difficult for this 1.1 mile trail.

Glacier Cave

Glacier Cave is amazing, it’s huge and filled with the natural beauty of massive rocks, ferns, mosses, and lichens.
