“Little slice of nature in the heart of the city”
Reviewed 11 July 2014

If you find yourself in Wausau, WI with time to kill, this is the perfect place to unwind. Situated on an island in the Wisconsin River, this little park in quiet and relaxing. Cross the bridge from Oak Island Park and cross the little open area and you find yourself in a veritable jungle of the ferns that give this park its name. Wind along the quiet footpaths and drink in the fragrant scent of ferns. See wildlife like deer right along the river bank. Be advised that the paths can sometimes be muddy, so watch your step.
