Welcome To MRR Nature Park
Nestled next to the Osborne Elementary School in Glen Osborne, below the activity of Beaver Street, lies the Mary Roberts Rinehart Nature Park. Named after noted mystery writer, Mary Roberts Rinehart, the park was once part of Mrs. Rinehart's estate. Overgrown and trash strewn from years of neglect, the park has been reclaimed from invasive species of plants. Through the efforts of volunteers and grantors, the park now provides an opportunity to relax and to learn about the plants indigenous to the Appalachian Region. The park also features a stone amphitheater hand-built by a generous neighbor. Click on Get Involved to find out how to volunteer, donate and be part of a new chapter in local history. Most of all--enjoy our beautiful park!
