The park is named after Calamity Line, which was (actually the nickname of) a railroad line that went through this area. This sign near the shelter tells about it.
The trail makes a loop around the park and even crosses the nearby CVS parking lot to another small grassy hill that is not, I believe, part of the park, but I used it in the run I did while we were there.
There's a playground,
a rose garden (which I'd like to see blooming later in the year),
a shelter styled to look like a train depot (pictures aren't that great since there was a family inside the shelter and I didn't want to intrude),
some daffodils coming up,
and over by the CVS, a gazebo and a sort of waterfall where the creek enters underground drainage.
It's a fairly nice park with a neat historic flavor that seems to get good use from local families and residents. There's a small parking lot, which makes it easier to visit if you don't live nearby. The trail meanders along for about half a mile as the sign says (more like 0.8 if you include the part west of CVS), has some gentle hills and valleys. and parallels the creek for a while. The lamp posts along the trail have a nice old-timey look to them. The shelter has a walkway styled like a train track that goes right through it, like a train station. Hopefully later I can go back and get some photos of that and the roses in bloom.
