ABOUT THE PARK
Schmitz Preserve Park has old growth forest, walking paths, Hiking and nature study.Acreage: 53.1
Schmitz Preserve was donated to the city in pieces between 1908 and 1912. The most generous chunk came from a German immigrant/pioneer/banker/realtor named Ferdinand Schmitz, who served on the park commission during those years. It was Schmitz's idea, as he saw how rapidly the great forest was disappearing, to preserve part of it in its natural state.
