Vistiors can take a break from walking around Southport in the shady Keziah Park. It is a 1/2 acre park used for picnicing and outdoor activities. The biggest attraction in the park is the Indian Trail Tree that has am interesting history associated with it.
Backstory and Context
The park is best known for the Indian Trail Tree that is within the park. It is estimated to be over 800 years old. It is said that Indians may have bent the tree when it was young to mark the trail to their fishing grounds on the coast of what is now known as Southport. The tree then took root a second time, which in turn created the unusual arch formation that we see today.
