Long Description:
This park is not only here to preserve the memory of the Ice Houses which were there in the early 20th century, but to preserve the view of the Conneaut Lake, PA's largest natural freshwater lake, which was glacially created. There are 16 dedicated benches on an west to east arc, and a water fountain in the middle. The coordinates are for the three glacial boulder markers (with plaques) at the SW corner, donated by the local gravel company.
