Mary S. Young State Recreation Area
Description - Mary S. Young State Recreation Area provides a quick but refreshing stop if you don't have time for a drive to the country.

There's also plenty of room for kids to play on the sports fields, a restroom, reservable shelter and an area for dogs to run unleashed.

Vital stats: There is no fee to use this park. A fee is charged for use of the group picnic area.

Recreation - Mary S. Young offers opportunities for group picnics or gatherings, hiking, biking, picnicking, fishing, bird watching, wildlife watching and playing sports.

Climate - The area receives a high amount of precipitation. Much of the precipitation comes from October to April in the form of rain at the low elevations and as wet heavy snow in the higher elevations. Winter temperatures are normally cool at the lower elevations and cold at the higher elevations. Although snow is possible in the lowest elevations, it is infrequent and does not stay on the ground for long. Late spring, summer and early autumn bring the best chance for clear, sunny days and bring moderate temperatures.
