The park’s name is of Swiss origin in keeping with the theme of Taberna. It sits on the western end of our development on Brice’s Creek. It is home to canoes that are available free to homeowners, a gazebo with picnic table, a dock with bench for fishing or viewing, and a hiking trail. The parking lot information center gives details on the creek and trail. Consult the Notice Board in the monthly Taberna Tribune for easy access to park and canoe keys. The latest edition of the Tribune can also be found on this website under Community.
Tips for getting there!
- On Taberna Way, pass Country club to your left. Keep straight until Taberna Way tee’s into Emmen Rd. There is a STOP sign.
- Turn left on to Emmen road. Go to the cul d’ sac at the end of Emmen Rd and park your car.
- You will see a walk around gate. Walk through it and keep going straight (about fifty yards) until you see a small sign board. It has Naturpark information. Read it if you want to.
There is more to the Naturpark than this. Just after you got off the wooden bridge there was a path to the right. It can be followed by a pretty well used path to a second wooden bridge and beyond to a bench. From that bench there is a fairly open woods that can be easily walked, but it is not marked.
Two bits of advice. Watch your step. There can be snakes. Wear long pants and use insect repellent. There are ticks, and there can be mosquitos.
