Roland Olson

Roland Olson’s 127-acres was once a polo complex. Today it is a favorite spot for hiking, picnicking, and horseback riding. A paved recreation path is accessible directly from the Roland Olson preserve. Hikers and equestrians will find a variety of landscapes to explore in Olson’s restored prairie, upland woods, and remnant pine plantation.

This site was historically used primarily for equestrian activities and remains a popular destination for horseback riding.
