Possum Creek MetroPark

Possum Creek MetroPark

This 556-acre park is the perfect place for a family outing.

Possum Creek MetroPark consists largely of former farmland that is going through the process of natural succession. Significant natural features include bottomland hardwood forests along Possum Creek, two mature beech woodlots, and numerous created ponds and wetlands. Over 100 acres of degraded farmland and dumps have been cleared and planted into native Ohio prairie. The prairie took years to establish, but now thrives on the poor ground. It is currently one of the largest and most diverse planted prairies in Ohio.

Although the land that is now Possum Creek MetroPark has been dramatically changed by past land use, it stands today as a splendid example of what can be achieved with proper stewardship and restoration, and is a delightful place for the naturalist, hiker, or family.

POSSUM CREEK METROPARK PET POLICY - Dogs are welcome, but, for the safety and comfort of all patrons, they must be leashed and under control at all times. Pets are not permitted on the farm.
