In 1951, the park planted a grove of maple trees to honor Charles S. Robinson, a friend of Volney Rogers and the original owner of the mansion that now houses the Ford Nature Center. The Rocky Ridge Neighborhood Association saw the potential and started a maple project in 2013. Come out to their Sugar Shack to see what it takes to make our favorite sugary breakfast treat. Call Ford Nature Center for details, 330.740.7107.
