    History & Resources

    The Robert C. Dix family generously donated this beautiful 103-acre park in Ravenna Township to the Park District in the year 2000 to ensure that it would always be preserved and enjoyed by the public. The property is a mix of forest, wetlands and 24 acres of former farmland, soon to be transitioned back to forest and meadow. The rolling woods is dotted with springs, wetlands and small streams and has a beautiful showing of spring wildflowers through its mature mixed hardwood forest and summer wildflowers edging the farmland.
