Nature at it's best. No busy city sounds Small aninals, can be seen as one walk's the pathway. Take a cold drink and a snack,but clean up after oneself as this is worth keeping clean for others.

Chestnut Ridge is a beautiful park. It is quiet and serene and has something for everybody. A playground and fishing pond for the kids and a moderately challenging hiking trail for everyone. I've never walked the trail without seeing several wild animals from albino squirrels...More

Chestnut Ridge is my favorite metro park in Ohio. The reason that Chestnut Ridge supersedes all other metro parks is largely due to the fact that it doesn't feel 'metro' at all! Driving through Canal Winchester to the park, it starts to feel a little...More

I live nearby so I may be biased but I really like this place. The hiking trail is a 2 mile loop with a "shortcut" down the middle. From the parking lot it doesn't matter which way you go, you'll be going uphill. It gets...More

This is one of the few parks around that have a wheelchair accessible fishing dock. This is a huge help to our family. the paths to the dock are paved, so it makes for an easy bumpless ride. The park rangers are all very friendly...More
