Blackwater Conservation Area
Recently revived with 7,000 new trees, this property includes two large fishing lakes and a 1-mile walking trail. The trees represent native species such as: Bald Cypress, Tupelo Gum, Cottonwood, River Birch, Red Mulberry, Persimmon, Pines and Oaks. The area was once an abandoned and neglected dirt mine but is now a peaceful riverside retreat from the hustle of the city.
