Marion County Park District

Naturally wild, naturally fun!

The Marion County Park District, in north central Ohio, includes five beautiful parks.

Marion Tallgrass Trail: This 12 mile corridor will feature Marion County's first multi-use recreational trail. We are actively seeking matching funds for this trail, so please consider a donation.

Terradise Nature Preserve, in eastern Marion County, offers a shelter house, hiking trails, geocaching, and peaceful reflection near the beautiful Olentangy River.

Greenspur, north of Prospect, features woods, a small wetland pond, and will contain a picnic shelter.

Myers Woods, near the Killdeer Plains Wildlife area in northern Marion County, is a wonderful place to take a short stroll in the quiet woods.

Caledonia Nature Preserve is a beautiful streamside forest near the village of Caledonia.

Volunteer, and make a difference! Join the Friends of Prairie Parks.
