Gilbert's Corner Regional Park includes over 155 acres of rolling countryside and mowed paths for walking over this historic landscape. The Eliza Davis Bluebird Trail features several nesting houses and is named for the Civil War-era lady who lived on the property and wrote of being "an eyewitness to war" on the home front for four long years. A small chestnut orchard is also located on the property, with interpretive signage.
