A very great place to get out and chill, the clean open Air will make you feel relaxed and at ease. A great place to go to if you want to spend some time with family and children, also a good place to spend some time with your partner.

A friend invited me to go on a bike ride at the Metroparks Bikeway starting in Canfield Ohio. Sure glad I went. We started just across from the Canfield Fairgrounds. We decided to go the whole trail to Niles, Ohio. The trip was about 27 miles all together. The trail was all paved, level and plenty wide. Many benches to... More

The Mill Creek Park is the crown jewel of the Youngstown/Mahoning County area. I grew up in that area and didn't realize how fortunate we were that the park is so well maintained and kept up. There are simply too many areas to name but you can do anything from row boating, paddleboating, garden viewing, etc. My favorite place to... More

A gorgeous forest setting especially beautiful in the Fall and Spring although a case could be made for winter scenes. This lovely drive through park has 3 lakes to drive around and beautiful gardens to explore. Very well kept up and is over 100 years old. Probably one of the most peaceful parks we have ever visited. Scenic, great trails... More

There are options and activities here for all ages. There are great programs run by the park, the cost of renting pavilions is extremely reasonable, and they seem to constantly be adding improvements. It's really the gem of this area.

There are walking trails, picnic areas and much more. Someone with a bike or who likes to hike there are miles of trails. The mill has... More

The park was a beautiful place for a long long time. Recently heavy rains cause sanitary sewers and septic tanks to contaminate the lakes and creeks with e coli bacteria, so no one is permitted to fish, boating, or use the lakes in any way etc. Local Government is saying it will take 20 years and $150,000,000 to fix the...
