This park was a gift from Robert and Elizabeth Nanovic, to the citizens of North Yarmouth, it is comprised of 10 acres of open fields and access to the Royal River. A hand-carry canoe launch provides recreational canoeist with an opportunity to enjoy many miles of the Royal River.

The open fields are used by young and old alike for sports activities, kite flying and family gatherings from April through November.

Once you find this wonderful park enter the drive and veer right to park in the upper parking area. Take a few moments to enjoy the views and walk around the upper field following the mowed path.

To find the box.
Find the path through the woods that leads to lower lot. About half-way down spy a path on your right. Look for a large 3 trunked tree on your left. Look in the tree to find a double surprise.

If you're feeling adventurous launch a canoe or kayak and paddle your way to the second park and the second box.

If you prefer to take the blacktop, this next park is located where the North Yarmouth Memorial Highway crosses the Royal river.

Park and look for an opening marked by two tall granite markers. Enter to find a wonderful clearing. Have a seat and look back the way you came. Just to the left of the left-hand marker notice a large bush. Go around the left side of the bush towards the back. You'll find what you're looking for under the bush

enjoy these wonderful North Yarmouth treasures.
