Roxhill Park is the headwaters of Longfellow Creek. The park began restoration in October of 2000. The restoration project involved removing fill that had covered a unique peat bog for the past forty years. The community-initiated planting of this area helped restore a natural habitat and created a new educational resource. Instead of soggy grass, the park has become a place for people to go for relaxing walks and summer picnics.
Every 2nd Saturday of the month is a work party to help control invasive species and other educational events. Please contact Scott at (206) 938-2144.
