Red Fox Meadows is a neighborhood natural area and an stormwater detention site. There is something for both people and wildlife here: improved habitat for wildlife, trails and reduced flood risk for people. You'll want to check out the new parking lot near the intersection of Prospect and Taft Hill roads, the outdoor classroom boardwalk and Barb McKee's Art in Public Places piece featuring a heron and cattails in the outfall structure.
