Time lapse of a beautiful sunset over Sprague Brook Park

A view of sunset from one of our benches on the grassy hill near the Memorial pond at Sprague Brook. The next evening’s sunset was also something to see.

Stay safe out there everyone! ☺️

That's right—Erie County Parks makes maple syrup! 🍁 100% pure syrup is made in our "sugar shack" at the Bureau of Forestry in Sardinia / East Concord.

Available in sizes from pint to gallon. Buy at @GratefulGrindCo at Chestnut Ridge. Makes a great #gift!

Here’s one great reason to keep those leaves that just fell in your yard! This spiky fella is the caterpillar of the Giant Leopard Moth (Hypercompe scribonia). This species overwinters in the leaf litter in your yard as a cocoon and then emerges the next year as this nocturnal beauty! We found this caterpillar in Chestnut Ridge Park but they can be found in many of our parks.

You can identify this caterpillar by its large size, black spikes, & when rolled up you can see red stripes (like in the photo!)

So be kind, and keep those fall leaves around to make a home for these amazing creatures!

Hey is Bennett open today?
Is Bennett beach open for swimming today (8/22/2020)
Is swimming allowed today at Bennett Beach? (Sat 8/15)
How's Bennett looking for today?
Is Bennett open today? I didn't see an update on here or the website.
Hi. I just wanted put in a formal request for a bigger parking lot for 18 Mile Creek Park. The lot can only hold approximately 8 cars. For a park that is 466 acres, that is just not enough space for parking. That works out to 58 acres per car load. This park is a beautiful gem and for only 8 carloads of people to be able to park there and explore, it is unfair. People have been ticketed daily at this point for trying to enjoy this park. Please help allow more than 8 families to be there legally at once. Is this possible? Thank you!
Can you still camp at Sprague Brook Park? I have reservations (soon) and have heard zip
Hello, Is this the page that updates about Bennett daily? It opened june 1, correct? Thank You.
Are the restrooms at Ellicott Creek Park open, and can the grills be used at this time? Thanks in advance.
Are we not able to reserve/rent a shelter at Como Park? Your online system shows all dates are unavailable.
When are you opening camping at sprague brook
Anyone know if Kayaking is allowed at Como Lake Park? If so whats the best place to launch? TIA
