City of Living Trees  - A Collection of Unique Scuptures by Brad Rhea
These unique sculptures can be found throughout our city. Some of the original wooden tree sculptures have been bronzed to be enjoyed forever. Select "Learn More" to view some of Brad Rhea's sculptures.
Overland Trail Recreation Area - A natural surrounding for walking, picnics, fishing - and dog friendly too!
Owners must be in control of their pets but leashes are not required. Dogs are also allowed to go swimming, but humans must remain on the shoreline.
