The park has local historical value with 1812 Blockhouse, 1808 Log Cabin, and currently building a working Blacksmith/Cooper shop. A place for kids to play and picnic tables for a picnic lunch. In the summer there is a program for children called Fun in the Park and in October an historical reenactment event. More information about the buildings can be found on Facebook at Richland Early American Center for History.

We stopped at the park to see some of the historical memorials and the cabin and fort. The cabin was under construction when we arrived and we stopped a moment to look at it. We were invited in by one of the workers. Then he took us over to see inside the fort. The volunteers at the park are very dedicated and kind.

There is also a community garden and play set located in the park.

We also were able to get a great variety of leaves from the various trees on the property.

It was a good 20 minute stop.

We have had baseball cook outs there. The was a nice place, fairly quiet, and lots of space for the kids to play.

Mix two historic buildings with a small playground, among large and old trees - and you have an hour or more of peaceful play. We found this little gem of a park by accident and ended up spending some time here.

Travel inspired Living says:
“The Blockhouse in South Park has been a prominent feature of Mansfield for over 200 years. Built on the square of Central Park during the War of 1812 by soldiers from Coshocton, the Blockhouse was originally constructed to protect the early settlers from possible Indian attacks.

Though the Blockhouse was used briefly in the capacity with which it was built, it did serve the newly formed Richland County as the first courthouse, jail, school and hosted the first religious service.”

We hope to return if we visit Mansfield again.
