North Side & Historical Area

Celery Flats is really a “park within a park." A key element of the Portage Creek Bicentennial Park, Celery Flats has two distinct settings. On the north side of Garden Lane, the Celery Flats Pavilion offers a nice open-air seating area, picnic tables, restrooms, and an air station. The Celery Flats Historical Area, with several relocated and restored buildings, is located south of Garden Lane. The Historical Area is the site of many community events and several of the buildings can be reserved for private group use.



A visit to the Celery Flats offers activities for everyone. The area is equipped with historical buildings, a pavilion picnic area, heated restrooms open year round, and walking trails in every direction.
