Lovely hike through the woods and meadows. The trail ran along the shale hollow in places - quite beautiful. My dogs and I had the trail to ourselves almost the whole time. There's a free-range play area that looks like a blast for kids, but pets aren't allowed there, so I didn't see all of it.

This park gets busy on Saturday/Sunday afternoons but is pretty quiet during the weekdays. There are several loop trails for walking, trail running, with some good bird watching opportunities in the grassy areas. There main nature center was closed due to COVID-19; however, they had several portable restrooms that were clean and had supplies. The outdoor natural play area is really amazing, bring water shoes and nets for creeking but stay in the designated areas.

A nice smaller neighborhood park approximately 210 acreas. It is located in the Lewis Center area behind Ralphs Marina boats. Just off Rt 23. The park has several trails for walking or biking. There is also a stream that runs thru the park that in most areas is shallow enough for young children to wade in. This stream will empty into to the Olentangy river nearby. The park is mostly wooded with many tall trees close together that allows guest to the park to walk under them with little undergrowth in several areas. They have some small foot bridge along the trails. While walking your seen many round Rock formations, called conerations round sandstone balls. The park has pinic tables in areas. There are 3 parking areas. One area toward the front of the park and 2 connected lots at the back of the park. There is also a building that has inside restrooms and I understand a large area that can be rented for meetings, parties or other occasions. When we were their the building and restrooms were closed. However they had 2 porta of johns near the entrance to the main trail. The park appears to be well maintained.

Nice place to walk and run, The main trail has a pretty good hill, flat the rest of the way. There are other trails, which are not improved.

This is a great park for kids! There’s not much to the trails, but kids can play in the creek for hours. It’s beautiful and shady. Make sure your kids have water shoes or boots though, and expect them to get a little dirty.
