Introducing the new -- and long awaited  -- West Brook Conservation Park.

Here you will find a 12.5 acre area that includes the 2.5 acre Charles R Wood festival space, where the music festival will take place on both days.

Watch the video on the West Brook conservation project and why it is important.

Here is the site plan:

More information here on the Lake George Association site.

In the 60's and 70's, this area was the site of the old Gaslight Village theme park, owned by Charles R Wood
(for whom the festival space is named). Here is a home movie of both Gaslight Village and Mr Wood's other local theme
park -- Storytown (which eventually became part of the Six Flags empire as the Great Escape).
