This historic property was once a turn of the century amusement park. It later became part of the Rumford Chemical Company, supplying water for their plant also located in Rumford. This is a passive recreation area with a picnic area overlooking a tranquil waterfall. The John Hunt House Museum, operated by the East Providence Historical Society, is a prominent part of this property. A link to the museum is found at the bottom of this page.
