Relax along the tranquil ponds and lagoons or take the court with a game of tennis or volleyball–Old Reid Park has it all! This 60-acre park offers shelter houses, a playground, volleyball courts, nine lighted soft tennis courts, shuffleboard courts, and fishing (no license needed). This park serves as the north trailhead for the Buck Creek Scenic Trail and offers plenty of parking. ADA-Accessible fishing is available and by entry off of the Buck Creek Trail.
The Kirby Preserve at Old Reid Park is now open to the public. This nearly 110-acre preserve was acquired through a Clean Ohio grant. For the past year, crews have been eradicating honeysuckle, developing prairie, meadow and wildflower areas, planting over 600 trees and removing old structures. This area, like all of our parks, is open dawn to dusk. It features nearly 4 miles of hiking trails, access to Beaver Creek and two catch and release fishing ponds. A Grand Opening Ceremony will be held on Friday, April 26, 2019. If you have any questions, please call us at 328-7275.
