HUMBOLDT ? Nestled in the far northwest corner of Humboldt lies Franklin Park.
The bucolic park, with a secluded pond surrounded by a walking path of crushed limestone, is ideal for fishing, picnicking, or just a quiet stroll. It was developed several years ago through a cooperative effort between the city and Allen County to make the area a bit more appealing with construction of nearby senior housing duplexes.
The Kansas Department of Wildlife and Parks periodically restocks the pond with catfish and bass, and is one of the community?s most popular fishing holes.
