Beaver Park is a pay-for-use park, requiring a small fee. People fish and swim in and ice skate on the ponds. There are also picnic areas, softball diamonds and almost seven miles of trails, with a few fitness stations along the way. The trails are groomed for x-c skiing. At one point, it seems like the trail ends at someone’s yard (I’ve marked it on the map with a red teardrop.) Keep going! The trail skirts their property. Also, along the perimeter trail called Jesup, on the east side of the park, there seem to be a number of cleared out areas, possibly for campsites? But no trails. In the spring, some of the trails might be quite wet, including the appropriately named Swamp Hollow Trail and J.P. Trail.

Directions: From downtown Lisbon, head out on Pinewoods Road and take a right on Cotton Road. The entrance to the park is on the right, about a half mile down Cotton Road.
