J. Henry Tweed Conservation Area is 16 acres of green space, trails, and country clean air, nestled in a subdivision. This is a 1980 land donation to SNC to provide a public recreational area for generations to come. The park links with the Russell Township New York Central Fitness Trail, a converted railway perfect for cycling and rollerblading.
