The property contains 104 acres adjacent to the west side of Holmberg Park. It is located along the east-facing slopes of Five Mile Prairie and provides a portion of a possible trail system around the prairie. The terrain ranges from gently rolling to very steep and from open space to heavily forested. The easternmost 9.5 acres are rolling to fairly level while the western 40 acres consist of steep timberland.
