Mercy Community Nature Center
eBird Bar Charts by Season
The county’s newest park, a partnership between Mercy and the Seneca County Park District, features a three-quarter-mile loop trail in a 22-acre wooded area west of the hospital. More trails are under construction. It features public fishing, riparian corridors, wildlife, the sound of flowing water and five geocaches.
At the entrance to the trail is “an amazing totem pole,” Gase said. Created by Ken Cahill, a park neighbor, the work of art is hand-carved and painted from a tree from the woods. The totem pole features carvings of animals Cahill has seen over the years in the woods.
Another highlight is a footbridge built over a ravine by Alec Wagner as an Eagle Scout project.
