This park sits approximately 36 minutes away from my house. I found it by asking a couple of moms in our playgroup years ago if they knew of any undiscovered swimming holes. The park is private, and only open to the public on weekends. Amazingly, the secret of this wonderful place hasn't gotten out and it remains quiet and unspoiled. This is a bust of Walt Whitman that sits atop a 20 foot pillar presiding over the entrance of the park. There are 3 other busts of famous writers there too, and they appear to be watching you enter through a canopy of trees. We usually make several visits there throughout the summer, always marvelling that the place is still in operation. It's run by the elder members of an Eastern European social club. I'm not sure of the particulars, but suffice to say that it is protected by the local land trust preservation group.
