With a boardwalk paralleling Four Mile Creek, Harry A. Laird Park is a quiet stop to enjoy a short walk tunneling into the forest at this small city of Freeport park.
Lat-Lon: 30.501689, -86.145416
Open: daylight hours
In Freeport, west of Old US 331, along SR 20 just a little west of the Freeport Public Library.
I’d hoped the boardwalk led to a more extensive hike, but this is a small place, perfect for a picnic and a stroll along a creek for birding. Ducks gathered near the outflow beneath the highway. There are barbecue grills along with the picnic tables.
