Fairy Trail

Wile we are quite surprised by the popularity of the Fairy Trail this summer, and we are happy that it has brought families out to explore the park. To avoid over saturation along the designated trail, we must ask that no additional fairy houses be placed along the trail or in the park. They will be removed.
We also would like to remind visitors that dogs are not permitted in Tinker Nature Park. Thank you for your cooperation.

13th Annual Civil War Reenactment

We would like to thank all the participants, military and civilian, for another successful reenactment/living history program at the Tinker Homestead and Farm Museum. We also would like to thank Henrietta Cub Scout Pack 332 for operating concessions, the Henrietta Parks Staff for set-up, clean up and parking, the Henrietta Sign Shop for setting up traffic control, and the Town Historian for her help in hosting the event throughout the weekend. This program would not be possible without the continued support of the Town of Henrietta, the Friends of Tinker Nature Park
