Did You Know?

Very Amusing
Gorge Metro Park once contained two amusement parks. Among them was High Bridge Glens, which opened in 1882 and featured a thrilling rollercoaster and a dance hall.

Fall Foliage
Leaves do not turn color in the fall. They simply stop producing green pigment (chlorophyll), allowing the reds, oranges and yellows to become visible.
