  • Wrong hours posted but beautiful park! Well maintained! Family oriented and several activities to keep you busy for many visits to come. My daughter is older but if you got tots they have a really nice safe educational space for them to experience hands on and learn about nature. Would rate 5 stars if they had more info available online about services
  • Wegerzyn was once the crown jewel of parks. Chris Jensen was the park horticulturist. Chris ran the park in a way that made it shine. There were old and new species. There were very few weeds. It made me sad to see it go downhill.
  • I have been taking my dog to the park there more so to the area with the pond because for the last 2 years when we go there my dog will run along the pond and jump in and wait and after a few minutes a otter pops up and loves to play with her..if other dogs are around she stays back till she sees the opportunity to jump out and play with my dog sissy..it is so awesome..I wouldn't suggest that you take your dog to play with her just assuming she will in fact play with your dog because she did go after a little Chihuahua in a mean way..our encounter happened by accident and it did scare me to death at first but as I ran to get my dog back I realized they were playing and ever since they have been best friends..I'm going down tomorrow 4/14/18 and I hope she made it through winter cause that was so amazing..she finally came up to me and let me pet her at the end of summer last year and I havent been back since..fingers crossed that she made it..I call her sassy
  • Beautiful throughout the blooming season! Great place to enjoy a nice walk and see a large variety of flowers blooming.
  • Beautiful landscaping and beautiful park to explore. Love Dayton Metroparks. Peaceful and wonderful environment to walk with family or friends and children.
