This little city park has a lot of charm even if it’s a bit rough. The trail includes a few lookouts onto the Messalonskee Stream (except at the very tip of the preserve, where I tried to bushwhack through the reeds before giving up).
There was a homeless couple camping in the preserve when I visited. They invited me into their camping area next to the stream to check out a sweet family of baby ducks.
Directions: I believe you can park at the Lutheran Church on 36 Cool Street. The trail is just north of the parking lot, on the right.
