Just 17 miles north of Fredonia, the Cross Timbers State Park includes five recreational areas surrounding Toronto reservoir.
Facilities available at the park include boat ramps, hiking trails, improved campsites and modern restroom facilities.
This charming bandstand was built in 1932 as a W.P.A. project.
The roof was destroyed in the early 1960's and local residents and businesses donated money to rebuild it, with a picture from the county museum as the only guide.
No tour to Fredonia is complete without going on this scenic drive up to the "Top of the Mound."
From this vantage point, you may enjoy the sights for miles around or just enjoy the beautiful park and picnic facilities. An observation tower provides unobstructed views and photo opportunities.
