Pamperin Park

[+] The distinctive suspension bridge crosses Duck Creek.

Pamperin Park is located along Duck Creek within the Village of Howard. The entrance, which was originally on the main highway heading west, has been well hidden by road improvements; a visitor must now turn west off Memorial Drive just north of State Trunk Highway 29 and follow several local streets.

In addition to public play and recreation, the park includes a pavillion building suitable for banquets and an outdoor gazebo area.
