“AN INTERESTING WAY TO LOSE A MAIN STREET”
Reviewed May 9, 2013

A nice park that shows what happened many years ago when a flash flood came through the area and totally wiped out the main street in Silver City. It is amazing to see what the force of Mother Nature can do.

“A surprise in the back of Downtown Silver City”
Reviewed March 14, 2013

Pleasant walk in a former drainage Ditch! The name doesn't make it sound like much, but meander here after lunch in Silver city for a pleasant walk.
