A blacksmith showed us how he worked iron th make a horse shoe. A gentleman showed us how Sorghum was made.... More

Extremely close to the city, yet it has the feel of being out in the middle of nowhere. I have walked all but one of the trails so far and they have done an amazing job of keeping the natural habitat in place while making it fun to hike. Would recommend hiking on these talks to anyone none are very... More

If you can go when they are having a festival, They have a blacksmith and lots of other areas to learn about life on a latter day farm. They play old fashioned games and have lots of fun for the family!

Love getting away from it all and strolling around the farm. I grew up on a farm many years ago and it is just a place I like to go to. Kids love it!

I'm getting to know Dayton by hiking in each of the MetroParks. I really enjoyed Carriage Hill. There is a lovely pond with a trail that goes all of the way around. The trail is grassy - wear shoes that can get wet if you go in the morning when there is dew. On weekdays at lunch, this park is... More

The park is very informative and interesting. Picnic tables are available. Staff was not really that friendly. Would have been better if the ones dressed in period costume had spoken to the guests instead of each other.

They could use a few more activities and advertise a bit more, but is a quality farm site for people to see what it use to be like before all the technology took over.

If you ever wondered what it was like to live in the country in the 1800's, Carriage Hill is the place to come. Functioning Farm with animals, barns, fields, crops, crafts, etc... Perfect day trip!

Nice place for a run, but also could picnic or fish. The only part I didn't like was the late opening (8am). Otherwise an excellent spot for hours of relaxation.
