REFUNDS: If you cancel 60 days or less prior to your event, the full payment made is forfeited and no refund is available for any reason. NO RAIN DATES. If you reserve and pay for a pavilion, you are doing so with the understanding that our normal refund policy of cancellation will remain in effect. Any requests for a refund must be made 60 days or more from your reservation date in order to be approved. Any renter who cancels, even due to coronavirus COVID-19, made inside of 60 days from the reservation date will not be eligible for a refund. Refunds will only be given inside of the 60 days IF we are unable to provide the pavilion due to closure making it unusable.
Poor House Farm Park features walking/bike trails for those beginner through advanced. Typically it takes a beginner-intermediate biker about 45 minutes to get through the trails. These trails are marked. At this time there is no specific trail map. Looking to the future MBCP&R plans to coordinate with local groups that use these trails frequently to help create a map for all.
