What makes LARPD Open Space Parks special?

LARPD open space parks allow you to explore nature right in your own backyard. Sycamore Grove Park is highly accessible yet large and ecologically diverse enough to immerse yourself in nature. LARPD rangers offer nature programs for the public and school/community groups. Check out all that we have to offer!
