The park, located on Sheridan Springs Road in the Town of Lyons, was acquired through Walworth County and a matching state grant in 2014. Since that time the barn roof has been replaced and a picnic shelter erected. Trails are continually maintained and two bridges across the White River have opened access to the southern portion of the close to 200 acres of the park that is open to the public from dawn to dusk.Friends of the White River County Park and the public are all welcome to attend this fundraiser. Proceeds from the gathering will be used to fund restoration of the prairies and for trail signs.
The Friends of the White River County Park are working in partnership with Walworth County and Geneva lake Conservancy to restore a 195 acre farm in Lyons, WI. This beautiful setting boasts an 85 year old cedar barn, one mile of riverfront footage, miles of hiking trails. Over 125 acres are being returned to native prairie.
A picnic shelter is located near the parking lot. This is a great place for family gatherings, group events and a picnic lunch. Call the County to reserve! 262-741-3114 Option 2
