Natural features

From Helderberg Hilltowns of Albany County, NY

An outstanding natural feature on a farm may become a tourist attraction—a bluff or rock outcropping, a waterfall, a grove of trees, a stream, or a spectacular view. Water is a popular natural attraction; sometimes natural features of interest to a visitor may have been overlooked by the farmer.

Visitor facilities at the natural feature might include picnic tables and / or an overnight camping site with fire pit and an out house.

A covered pavilion might attract groups interested in a site for family reunions, weddings, special events. An example of a private park in Berne that has such facilites is Pole Kat Park on the Lendrum farm on Tabor Road, Berne. (Not open to the public.)
