Sweetwater Creek State Park

Explore wooded trails that follow the free-flowing stream to the ruins of the New Manchester Manufacturing Company at the 2,549-acre Sweetwater Creek State Park. The 215-acre George Sparks Reservoir is popular with anglers and provides the perfect setting for feeding ducks and canoeing. Maps and park information may be found in the new Interpretive Center. The Interpretive Center has displays reflecting the New Manchester Manufacturing Company and it’s operation. Exhibits cover Native American influence on the property, local Civil War history, native flora and fauna and the geology of the area. Not to be overlooked is the green nature of the building itself as an exhibit.
