  • The Nature Realm is a beautiful place to spend a relaxing time. They have 3 different nature trails, varying in intensity. Completely serene for when you need a day to decompress...
  • My absolute favorite park! I still drive out of my way to come here. I have so many memories here. I'll never forget when my best friend showed me this place. I felt like I was no longer in Ohio. Then I showed all of my friends this place. I love coming here alone as well. Just to walk around and clear my head. Truly a beautiful place.
  • I discovered this park when my children and I first started participating in the Fall Hiking Spree. It would be our last stop as the Visitor Center is where we'd pick up our hiking shields. :-) We love to hike in the CVNP and Summit Metroparks, but don't frequent this one as the trail isn't as long as we usually like to hike. But it is a beautiful park for strolling down a paved path or walking through a short less-than-a-mile loop through woods, grassy wildflowers, and gardens. There is sometimes music on the lawn in the summer and other family events. A very pretty and peaceful place.
  • Love this place. Serene and well maintained. Different trails for different users ranging between 1-3 miles. Uphill terrain for the most part. Seating facilities are available for resting and eating. Rest rooms and drinking water facilities are good. No entry fee. There is a nice deck with a man made pond. The spice garden is educational and interesting.
  • Amazing park that is well maintained. Kid friendly and a beautiful place to walk around in.
