  • Fantastic park! I’m a photographer and have used this park for many years as a location to shoot. Huge plot of land for many different nature background and landscapes. Kept up by staff very well. It’s peaceful here! Thankful for this place.
  • One of my favorite places to go for a nice walk! Beautiful flowers and butterfly house when in season. Beautiful grounds that are clean and well groomed. They have paved and unpaved trails. Perfect for an afternoon or morning stroll. Enjoy the sights!
  • This is a seemingly sprawling nature reserve with picturesque walking, resting and hiking areas in a relatively compact area. It doesn't feel small, but I know it's not as large as other reserves. They have a lot interesting landscaping features and to large points teeming with beautiful large coy and soon bathing turtles. Most trees, shrubs, and notable plants are labeled for informational purposes. They have several educational areas including an herb garden, butterfly house, and a large tree tower.
  • One of the nicest places in Dayton. They really take care of this place and it's just a joy to walk around. A great, free activity for all ages.
  • Very busy and popular place for good reason! I love it here on warm spring days and during the early fall especially. The grounds are very well maintained and everything is gorgeous!
