Located off Verdant Lane in the heart of St. Martins, Niekamp Park is 4 1/2 scenic acres shaded by stately oak trees. Whether you are looking for a place for a picnic, a bbq, a playground for the kids to enjoy, or a place to walk in a natural setting on a 1/3 mile ADA-compliant walking trail, Niekamp park fills the bill. It has a large pavilion and/or a small pavilion available for rental and multiple picnic tables that are available on a first-come, first-served basis. The trail, which was added with help from the Recreational Trails Program in 2015, has a drinking fountain, multiple rest areas, and is suitable for a wide range of fitness and mobility levels.
Niekamp Park is winterized from November 1- March 31. While the drinking fountain and restrooms are not available during this time, the trail & playground are available weather permitting.
