Old Pond School Park

Old Pond School is a restored 1914 one-room schoolhouse on one acre of land.  Behind the school, there is a simple playground, much like you'd find years ago at a one-room schoolhouse.  There's a slide, merry-go-round, swings and a see-saw!  There is also a pavilion with picnic tables, perfect for your next small event!

History of the Park:

Old Pond School opened in 2006. The land, and existing school building, was donated to the City in 2001 by Loraine Conreux, with a promise the old school building (built in 1914) would be renovated and restored to its previous condition. The building would then be opened to the public as a meeting facility and small museum. The building restoration was accomplished, along with the construction of a playground as it may have appeared in the very early 1900’s, along with an outdoor park pavilion. The park offers a small, quiet, and very pleasant setting.
