This wooded canyon along Tryon Creek is the site of an abandoned quarry and is named in honor of the restoration efforts of F. C. and Addie Marshall, whose summer home has been replaced by a small playground and picnic site. Tryon Creek is a boulder-strewn brook here, its banks lined with maidenhair and sword-fern. Water tolerant western red cedars lend their graceful shade to the surrounding forest. A network of trails suitable for dry-weather hiking crisscrosses the canyon at Marshall Park.
