From Sylvan Lake Back to Rock Brook

Updated: Jun 19, 2019

This section of Skillman Park on the northern border of Blawenburg used to contain Sylvan Lake, a man-made lake that served as a source for ice for the previous institutions on the park grounds before modern refrigeration. It also served as a recreational spot for people from Blawenburg and surrounding villages. When the park took over, the dam was removed for liability reasons, and the lake went back to being a brook. Many geese used to populate the lake and many still come back to it, perhaps to do genealogical research on their ancestors!
