“I grew up in the city where even parks were rare. When I moved to Indiana a few years ago, I found a natural wonderland called Taltree. Taltree offers everything that I longed for, natural beauty, hiking trails and serenity. One visit to Taltree was all I needed. I became a member the next day. On occasion, I just sit on a bench and watch the grasses and trees gently blow in the wind, smell the flowers and listen to the birds sing…This is why I come to Taltree.”
