This park is dedicated to teaching the basic food groups so if you have little ones this could be a neat feature to look forward to. The North Addison Park is a 3.45 acre park that has a half-mile jogging/walking trail, picnic tables, park benches, an arbor shaped like a farmhouse, food themed interpretive signage, pet waste dispensers and a pollinator patch. There is not a designated parking lot or space for this park.
