  • Great place for a short family hike. Nice view from the top. The park area is great for families. Lancaster needs to put up better signage. 
  • Lovely park. Nice playground, pond, mountain to climb, tennis courts and space to picinic. I visit this park often. Fun place to people watch. The foundation in the pond is nice. 
  • My husband and I have lived in the Lancaster, OH are for 11 years. We have just now experienced climbing to the top of Mt. Pleasant. The trail was not a hard one to climb. Took about 15 minutes. It is...  read more »
  • This is a very nice park!! I was only here for about an hour and was able to see quite a bit. Including the spectacular view from the top. The main trail to the top is pretty difficult (for an overweight male like me anyway.. haha) but don't let this persuade you not to try it. It is gravel most of the way, and there are stone benches every couple hundred steps or so if you get tired. The view from the top is very worthwhile. It was about 750 steps from top to bottom (I am 5'11") and only took me about 15 minutes to the top. There is a very nice pond right by the parking lot when you pull in. That's all I was able to see on this visit. But I will be back.
  • Steep hike to the top of a hill, from which you get a beautiful view of the surrounding landscape. Rising Park is well-known (hardly a hidden gem) to the people of Lancaster, but worth a visit to those from outside the area. The main attraction is the gorgeous view overlooking the town of Lancaster, but there is also a scenic reservoir, an old house on the property, and plenty of places to wander.
  • Great place to have get-togethers. The shelter houses are clean and nice
  • This is one of the best parks on the southeast side of Columbus. They have a huge playground, a large pond and a massive hill to climb with a great lookout at the top.
  • Nothing like climbing a mountain in the midst of Central Ohio. I love this place!
