All this snow makes us excited for summer and flowers.

We are excited to sell fresh flowers at the park store this summer. We will post more information about the flowers and when they will be at the park closer to summer.

Happy Valentines Day. Hope you were all able to spend it with those that you love.
Good news....... Our flowers will be at Deep River County Park this year with other wonderful things to being announced these next coming weeks.

Happy Valentine’s Day Everyone!!

Our park is always filled with love, with all the weddings and family photo shoots.

A fun thing to do at the park is to look for hearts in nature. This pic was of a leaf outside the park store this past summer.

First Deep River Grinder practice of the year, well I guess everyone is looking forward to more baseball games in 2021.

Well the Deep River Grinders had their first practice of 2021. They weren't quite able to make it on to Grinder Field, but they still practiced. These gentlemen are either dedicated or crazy. I guess that's up to you decide.

We will be posting our 2021 game schedule soon and can't wait to see all of you in May!!

Too pretty not to share!

Not ready to brave a trip into this cold? At least you can still enjoy the view from your phone.

Oh no! 6 more weeks of winter has been predicted! Luckily he has only been accurate 47% of the time.

Happy Groundhog day everyone!

Groundhog, woodchuck, whistling pig or land beaver, there are many names for them. Groundhogs are common in Indiana and are a part of the squirrel family. It's unlikely to see one except on a stage right now because they usually hibernate November through mid February.

So how much wood would a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood? Well, even though their teeth are similar to beaver and ever-growing, they don’t chop down branches for their home. They live in underground burrows. Woodchucks or groundhogs only eat tree barks right after hibernation before Spring brings new vegetation. They prefer to eat grass, flowers, fruit, berries and sometimes vegetables, beans and insects. They are more likely to climb a tree for an apple than chop down the tree. So, to the answer the question…probably not much wood, cause there would be no need.

Water wheel update!

We know everyone misses the water wheel, but it will be worth the wait. Right now staff is working hard cutting out notches in shaft.

Also, did you know Wood's Historic Grist Mill never originally had a water wheel. The water wheel was added during the restoration in the 1970's. The mill was originally ran with a turbine. This turbine was found when park staff was digging out the current mill pond.

Happy Friday Everyone!

Nature is so cool.

Snow is just the best for looking for animal tracks. Some more tracks... looks like a branch was pulled into the river...plus paw and tail prints.

01/28/2021

Hmmm looks like someone was “busy” in the park last night.

Did you know that snow actually helps the making of pure maple syrup?

Snow helps by insulating the ground keeping it from freezing and allowing trees to continue to draw up water from the ground when the temperature is right. So snow isn’t all bad!

Maple Syrup Time is just around the corner, so in mid February you will see buckets popping up all over the park. Our public programs will be March 13, 14, 19 and 20.

We will be following all local, state and CDC safety guidelines and posting information for self-guided tours. We also have virtual field trips for schools/groups that can’t visit in person but still want to learn all about how pure maple syrup is made.

For more information about Maple Syrup Time call the park at 219-947-1958.

The trails are open year round, even when it snows. It’s actually a really good time to look for animal tracks.

We had lots of winter fun during our Winter Fairy Houses program on Saturday. There was just the right amount of snow.

Just a reminder, that just because it's winter, doesn't mean you can't visit the park and have some fun. Just be careful because the snow/ice can be slick and our trails can be tricky due to all the erosion.

Looks like Trooper is enjoying at snowy walk at our park. So glad he could visit!!!

Trooper is up for adoption through the Humane Society of Hobart. Check out their page for more information about Trooper and other animals that are available for adoption.

It’s pretty cool that the mill is on the cover of the Indiana Park and Recreation Association magazine “the Profile”.

Again we have to thank Guse Christmas Trees for the wreaths and garland that makes the historic side of the park look so beautiful this time of year.

One of our favorite parts of decorating for the season is seeing all of our park guests photos.

Just a reminder that the historic buildings are closed until Maple Syrup Time, but the park is open all year round. Christmas decorations will stay up until the new year.

We just had to share this great photo by Christina Paris!!

Captured Expressions Photography by Christina Paris used the decorated mill as the perfect backdrop for a family photo. Also, Paris was spreading some holiday cheer by giving away free holiday portraits! We’re not sure if there are any spots left, but this pic was too good not to share.

Just a reminder, the park is decorated for the holiday season till the new year. So it’s the perfect time to take a walk and/or a picture.

Tomorrow, December 13, the park store is OPEN one last time this year from 10-5. So stop in a get our stone-ground cornmeal, pure maple syrup and a cup of hot chocolate.
