When you want to escape the hustle and bustle of daily life, there's no better place to do it than at a local park. The combination of fresh air, sunshine, and exercise is a powerful antidote to stress and fatigue. The Tarrywile Park and Mansion promise ample amounts of outdoor space to explore the next time you have a free afternoon.
Its 722 acres used to be part of a working dairy farm and fruit orchard, but today they play host to hiking trails and beautiful bodies of water. Map out a route and go for a hike at Tarrywile Park—it boasts more than 21 miles' worth of trails—and stop to admire the views of its two ponds or single sparkling lake along the way. You can also sit down for a picnic at one of the tables scattered throughout the park or even stay overnight at one of its campsites. The mansion on-site hosts special events, mostly weddings, so consider it if you have a big occasion coming up.
