    Built on farmland owned by Benjamin Michaels somewhere around 1952, it was used as a family picnic ground, with kitchen and playground. It was also Ben's escape from his farm duties. Over the years, several sections were built onto it. According to his grandson, Ben's wife didn't like dancing, but Ben loved it. He hosted many a square dance there in early years. After Ben's death, grandson Allen Erhart took it over and continued to rent it out. Many churches did retreats or ladies' group luncheons here. It could be rented out for events. About 10 years ago, he sold the property and closed the park, due to liability of renting the park becoming too much for him. Urban sprawl has doomed this place, however, and it will soon be torn down.

    All this info is straight from the former owner himself.
