The most prominent feature of this 72-acre park is the large open grassy area that is available for community events including Ballonfest in July. The area is also used for kite flying, Frisbee throwing, picnicking and general romping by children, dogs and families. What is not immediately apparent is that Freer Field also contains 25 acres of hickory/oak and white pine forest. Several bridges over a small creek and two miles of well-maintained trails make for easy and pleasant hiking, jogging and biking. The creek itself is full of minnows and a family with a small net can make a great summer memory.
