Coal Creek Community Park and Museum - FREE ENTRY and unlimited fun for the whole family.

While you're here drop in and have a look at our Community Gallery, and be sure to talk to our volunteers for their knowledge of local history. Come on one of our scary Ghost Tours and see the village at night. Think of Coal Creek for your wedding, or for a special event with the family.
