The Stroll, beginning at 700 East 1st Street, features a scenic 3/4-mile woodchip trail through a beautiful forest, several manmade bridges crossing a scenic little stream, and the main attraction–about two dozen handmade “trolls,” designed by Oakland-Craig School students. Absolutely charming. Free admission, open every day of the year, all day long.
