This is a very nice park for playing with the kids or hiking. Lovely little lake and paths through both fields and trees.

Go here

OK? So here is the deal. I was a chaperone for my kids 4th grade class here. It is a great place! Worth a trip. Now, for the other shoe. I grew up on an 800 acre farm. We got there around noon after lunch and Carriage Hill was very quiet. That is not how it is in the morning. Roosters start crowing at around 4:30AM. Cows mooing to be milked. The chickens are wanting me to out my eggs in the egg basket, Do not even get me started on the pigs! What I am saying is that this is a fantastic place to visit. I have never met another person who grew up on a farm and liked it. Do not read this to your kids. I did not even tell this to mine. Would I go back? Yes. To Carriage Hill not my grandmas.

A natural escape from the hub-but
Sep 2019
After being on the road for 5 days, on the 6th, we headed for the Carriage Hill MetroPark with our std. poodle. (It wasn't far from the humble little Red Roof Inn we stayed at the night before in Huber Heights.). What an escape from the spaghetti of interstates, the traffic noise, and cars, semis, semis and more semis.

It was Sunday morning, not a roar from the freeway, as we headed under it and turned in the metro park. We parked near the lake and wandered the paths through the trees, took the "R" trail around the lake and felt the peacefulness of all the fishermen as they cast lines into the water. Even our dog was calmed by the atmosphere. Henry David Thoreau would have approved.

Great Family Place
Jan 2019 • Family
I take my grandson to Carriage Hill park. Started when he was 18 months. He loves seeing the animals and playing in the welcome center. There is an area set up like an old school classroom with slates and chalk. It warmed my heart when the older kids playing one day all stood and did the Pledge of Allegiance. It is a popular place for home school kids to go also. We have also fished in the pond several time. Can't say enough about this place if you like old working farms.

Carriage hiss is a very nice park. Perhaps one of the best of it's like. It it a fun place to tour, even more fun with kids. I enjoy photography and have truly enjoyed this venue for that purpose.

Beautiful Farm

I have been going here since i was 5 years old with my family, it is a beautiful farm and they have horses and barns and country land. Great place to expose a child to nature and how it used to be.

Lots of Farm Animals

We started off at the equestrian center. The Grandgirls loved watching the horses being brought in the barn. Then we went to the farm and they petted the ram pictured here. So nice. It’s free and a nice place to take the family.

Great place for families! They always have activities on the weekend and very family oriented. Loved it when our kids were younger and now with our grandchildren.
