Crescent Park

Discover the timeless beauty of Crescent Park, a cherished gem that has graced our community since 1900. This historical haven, once adorned with a lively Pavilion, bathhouses, and spaces for swimming and dancing, holds a rich legacy of shared memories.

As stewards of this irreplaceable heritage, the Nickerson Lake Wilderness and Preservation Association (NLWP) stands as a beacon of care and dedication. With the passage of time, the state’s acquisition of the property has left it without an official caretaker, but our commitment remains steadfast. Our volunteers have stepped up, providing essential services like lawn maintenance and trash collection. The NLWP’s generous contributions have allowed us to maintain the park’s charm, including staining outhouses and fences. Moreover, we’re invested in enhancing the recreational experience by replacing swim line ropes, advocating for a cleaner environment with purple cleanup bags.

Join us in safeguarding this heritage and ensuring that Crescent Park continues to be a source of joy and inspiration for generations to come. Your support matters now more than ever.

Small: length 5.75 inch
