Alice Bish Walkway

In May 1994,Chalmer Bish wanted to do "something nice and healthy" for the community. His donation of over five acres of land along Greenville Creek for a park and walking trail was a testament to his commitment to both the community and the health benefits of walking. Today Alice Bish Park, named in honor of Chalmer's wife, provides not only a scenic nature trail along the banks the creek, but serves as the Trailhead for the Greenville Creek Trail extending from Darke County Parks' Alice Bish to the Greenville City Park.

Wood Ducks, Great Blue Herons, stately sycamores, and native wildflowers in season greet the visitor as you stroll along scenic Greenville Creek. The nature walkway of Alice Bish Park then loops across the paved Greenville Creek Trail and continues into a peaceful riparian corridor, returning periodically onto and along the paved trail with an eventual return to the trailhead.

Canoe and kayak enthusiasts can launch their craft at the Alice Bish Canoe Launch for a float downstream.

Alice Bish Park serves a dual role as the trailhead for both the paved multi-purpose trail and the nature walkway. Visitors can choose between a brisk pace along the paved trail or a casual peaceful walk streamside. In addition, the trail system provides access not only to the Greenville City Park but also on to Darke County Parks' Prairie Ridge, The Anthony Wayne Peace Council House and the trail to Tecumseh Point.

Easily accessible from Ohio Street in Greenville, nearby Alice Bish Park provides the ideal setting for a casual, stroll in any season, with nature and a scenic stream as your companions.

Drew Woods

According the Eliza Drew Miller and her family, who owned the woods in 1961, nothing had been cut out of Drew Woods, nor had it been pastured for the 75 years they had owned it. They also felt that it had probably never been cut or pastured. Perhaps it was the last remaining tract of old growth forest in western Ohio.

J. Arthur Herrick of the Ohio Biological Survey, praised Drew Woods in 1961, stating: "The size of the trees, the considerable number of species, and its truly virgin nature force me to the conclusion that this is very likely the finest stand of forest in the entire state."

At the time, Eliza had been offered $5,000 dollars for the trees and the area had already been marked by the forester to be cut. Mr. Herrick felt time was of the essence if the woods were going to be saved.

Pike Lumber Company acquired the area in 1963, and with the guidance of the Dayton Museum of Natural History, left the area untouched until 1984. At that time Howard M. Utter, Pike President, stated; "We choose to preserve this unique forest as a living classroom and exhibit of the native fauna that was present long before our land was settled." With that, Pike Lumber Company donated Drew Woods to the Ohio Department of Natural Resources, Division of Natural Areas and Preserves.

Since the early 1960's there have been numerous research projects conducted in Drew Woods. A study of the trees showed some to be 300 years old. Thirteen articles and abstracts about the life in its three buttonbush ponds have been published. And in a 1990 research paper, Drew Woods was identified as "the only old-growth remnant of oak-maple upland forest and oak-maple swamp in the state".

Today, Drew Woods is part of the Darke County Park District. Through a lease agreement with the State of Ohio, we have taken over the management and programming of Drew Woods according to its master plan. Currently it has no visitor facilities, but Naturalist led tours into the preserve are offered twice a year.

On the northern end of the Preserve, a budding savannah can be seen. Consisting of various grasses and second-growth trees, this area will demonstrate how the land transforms as it returns to nature. This region will provide much needed edge habitat, further encouraging the biodiversity of this Preserve.

Within the forest is a button-bush swamp. Button-bush is commonly associated with high quality wetlands. In addition to this swamp, several vernal pools are interspersed throughout the low areas of the woodland. These pools provide excellent breeding habitat for numerous amphibians and birds alike.

Easily accessible from Ohio Route 502 West and Palestine-Union City Road, Eidson Woods will provide a feast for the senses throughout all seasons!

Prairie Ridge Meadow

Take a step back in time and explore the meaning behind Greenville being the Treaty City. The recreated Native American Peace Council House, located at Prairie Ridge meadow across from the Garst Museum, is a modern day reconstruction of the Council House built by General Anthony Wayne during the Treaty of Greene Ville talks in 1795. Its construction was made possible through the efforts of the Treaty of Greene Ville Bicentennial Committee and is staffed by committee volunteers who share the significant stories of this region’s settlement. Open by special reservation and on scheduled weekends from spring through fall.

Locally known as “Buchy’s Pasture,” the meadow below the Council House hosts gatherings and provides a stage for interpreting the area’s rich history. The large oaks that encircle the lower meadow are well over 200 years old and were here to witness that history.

On the hillside near the parking lot is a recreated prairie seeded with 100 varieties of grasses and flowering plants native to Darke County. From this location visitors can access the Council House, Prairie meadow, and a spectacular view of Greenville Creek from the converted railroad trestle. This project was funded by the Coppock-Hole Trust.

Railroad Park

This park, located near downtown, provides over 6 acres of recreation and natural area. Citizens and residents are welcome to enjoy the horseshoe courts, playground equipment, picnic tables, benches, shelter house, gazebo and walking trails.

The short Union City Gateway Trail is significant in that it was the first trail to cross the Indiana–Ohio border. A highlight along the paved pathway is the beautifully landscaped park on both sides of the border along Stateline Street.

Eventual extensions farther into Indiana will tie into the 62-mile Cardinal Greenway, while connections are planned farther east into Ohio through Darke County into Greenville and to the existing Tecumseh Trail in Bradford.

Routzong Preserve

From spectacular spring wildflowers to brilliant fall leaves, the Beech-Maple forest of Routzong Preserve makes it an area of interest during every season of the year. Visitors will find over 1 ½ miles of trails to explore in this 55-acre park with countless opportunities to enjoy the many seasonal natural events. Ronnie and Betty Johnson donated a portion of this preserve to Darke County Parks. This park is also the site of the Trees for Tomorrow Memorial Trail.

The following is part of a report authored by Paul E. Knoop, noted naturalist and former Education Director of the Aullwood Audubon Center on the eve of Park designation for Routzong Preserve, then known as Johnson Woods.

“On the evening of May 7, 1984…I had the opportunity of walking through the 35-acre Johnson Woods. As we left the cultivated fields and entered the woodland, we felt a sense of quiet and peacefulness. We sank into the leaf litter on the woodland floor and had to walk carefully to avoid tramping on wildflowers. The wildflower carpet here is outstanding and very likely representative of Darke County prior to European settlement. Of special note were Running Strawberry, White Baneberry and Blue Cohosh."

The topography of the woodland is gently rolling so that small wet areas occur throughout. These wet areas typically have Spicebush, Sensitive Fern, and other wetland species.

The dry/wet character of the woodland is also indicated by the trees. The wet areas contain Sycamore, Red Elm and American Beech. The dry areas contain various species of Oak and Hickory.

It is a joy to walk in a woodland such as this and encounter large trees. Of note was a 36-inch Red Elm, large Buckeyes and Oak trees. Trees this size are rapidly disappearing…and here in this “living museum” they will be allowed to live out their natural life spans.”

It is the wish of Darke County Parks that you, too, discover this joy. Located on Routzong Road 5 miles southeast of Greenville off St. Rt. 571. Park Hours: Sunrise to sunset

Shawnee Prairie Preserve

Shawnee Prairie Preserve is Darke County Park’s largest park. There are currently about 2-1/4 miles of level trails that wind throughout the different ecosystems of the 118-acre park. Benches and observation towers at different points along the trails make visiting the park more enjoyable for visitors who wish to spend some time observing the plants and wildlife within the preserve.

The Nature Center located at Shawnee Prairie Preserve is open from 9am to 5pm Monday through Saturday. Restrooms and water fountains are accessible during business hours, as well as educational displays, live animal displays, bird observation area, and nature gift shop.

For more details on room reservations, please contact the office manager. All scheduling is done by contacting the office manager.

It’s name--Shawnee Prairie Preserve--accurately describes a park that is steeped in a rich mix of history and native plants and wildlife.

Archaeological evidence has confirmed that at least a portion of Shawnee Prairie Preserve was the site of Prophetstown, this village was founded by Tecumseh’s brother (called The Prophet) to rally fifteen woodland Indian Nations to gather here and demonstrate their living and hunting rights under the 1795 Treaty of Greene Ville.

Rich in natural diversity, Shawnee features wetlands, restored prairies, two streams, a wet woods, swamp forest, and a successional area.

Turkeyfoot Preserve

Turkeyfoot Preserve is located southwest of Greenville with convenient access and parking located just off OH-121 on Bishop Road. The preserve is the result of the Natural Resources Conservation Service Wetlands Reserve Program with additional funding through the Clean Ohio Conservation Fund. Darke County Parks acquired this preserve in 2001 with the intent to maintain the wetlands, re-establish prairie and provide for public access and passive recreation. Currently, a Trail Head Kiosk has been installed. A gravel serpentine trail takes the visitor from the parking lot north along an old railroad bed, a donation by Vectren Energy Delivery of Ohio and Panhandle Pipeline Inc. The trail leads to the east edge of the preserve with access trails to the prairie and the wetlands. An observation deck at the top of a gentle hill provides a stunning panoramic view of the Tawaskote Menitsa Prairie. Park Hours: Sunrise to sunset

Winterrowd Wetlands

Migrating water birds, the songs of wetland creatures, and blooming prairie wildflowers are all part of what makes the Winterrowd visit an experience to be treasured. This diverse 60-acre preserve is a model of wetland conservation and provides a glimpse of this part of the Ohio country as it was before settlement. Ohio’s remaining wetlands provide valuable wildlife habitat and critical environmental benefit, from reducing flooding to ground water purification.
Access is restricted to the parking area and foot trail to the observation blind. Please help us protect this valuable preserve.

Located in the headwaters of the Stillwater River, Winterrowd consists of a 35-acre “pothole” wetland, 5 acres of upland woods and 20 acres of prairie. A 1/4-mile trail winds through the prairie from the parking area to an observation blind looking over the wetland.

During mid to late summer when the prairie grasses, including Big Bluestem, Indian Grass and Little Blue Stem are at full height, and the asters, coneflowers and sunflowers bloom, Winterrowd sparkles as a reminder of Ohio prairies past.

The pothole wetland and adjacent prairie provide a premier birding location. Spring and fall migrations of teal, rail, snipe, yellowlegs, herons and other shore birds are often seen from the upland trail and the observation blind. The prairie provides habitat for grassland nesting birds of many species. Meadowlarks, bluebirds and swallows are common. Bobolinks, native sparrows and Marsh Wrens have also been seen. Hawks soar above; woodpeckers, orioles, towhees and other forest birds add to the delight that is Winterrowd.

Easily accessible from Ohio Route 47, Winterrowd should be visited often to appreciate the marvel of wetlands and habitat diversity in every season. Park Hours: Sunrise to sunset

Worth Family Nature Preserve

Donated to the Parks' by the heirs of Robert Worth, this unique natural area is a mosaic of floodplain, hardwood forest, pine plantation, managed prairie, and thickets. Trails through these varied habitats will lead you to the eastern boarder of the park - a stretch of scenic Greenville Creek that remains in its natural state, having never been dredged or channelized.

The meandering stream and diverse flora and fauna make Worth Family Nature Preserve an exceptional natural area to visit any time of year.

The trail head begins at the restored prairie. Indian Grass towers overhead, but you can still catch a glimpse of Tree Swallows darting and swooping to and from their nest boxes in the spring and summer months. Watch for Monarch and Red Admiral butterflies crossing your path in search of nectar sources.

The prairie gives way to a dense stand of 35-year old White Pine trees. This quiet, sheltered place is an ideal roosting area for Wild Turkeys and Great Horned Owls, who hide within the drooping boughs and branches.

Continue through the muffled quiet of the pines and enter a noisy thicket of wild Hawthorn and Crab Apple trees. The abundant fruits and seeds provided by these trees keep many animals active well into the winter months. A variety of bird species nest in this intermediate succession area, attracted by the protective thorns and ample food supply.

Walk down a gently sloping hill onto the flood plain, where Greenville Creek meanders and riffles under the shade of Sycamore trees. In spring, a colorful carpet of wildflowers blanket this low lying area. Sessile Trilliums, Wild Geraniums, Yellow Trout Lilies, Dutchmen’s Breeches, and Spring Beauties are just a few of the myriad of species you will discover and enjoy.

Darke County Steam Threshers

Darke County Steam Threshers

The DCSTA is dedicated to preserving the history of agriculture through the first half of the 20th century. We believe that seeing the steam engines that are well over a hundred years old operating by threshing wheat, operating on a brake or fan, as well as working the saw mill, will be a history lesson not soon forgotten . The visitors also get to enjoy the steam engines playing on the hill climb or the teeter totter. Our spectators get to see a tractor pull, and see the tractors on a dynamometer, as well as binding the wheat, and during our daily parade. Our tractors also get put to the test with their drivers through tractor games, which test their skills and luck at different contests. Trying to manipulate a tractor around various obstacles and precise driving earn the winner bragging rights until the next day, when revenge is exacted and friendly competition is found again. We have gas engines that range in all sizes, some that were used at homes and then we also have a few former oil field engines that are operated for all to see. Every year we have several special exhibitors that cater to the children by giving simple lessons on safety and steam engine operation. Many of these folks have been known to cut up watermelon with a buzz saw for the kids to eat, kids versus scale size steam engine tug of war, rides on full size engines, plenty of whistle blowing and basically anything they can do to make a kid smile. It’s even irresistible to adults at times. Our board and members thrive on seeing several generations visiting the show every year. It’s hard to not smile when you see families walking around all day, then watch them leave at night smiling after catching up with old friends and meeting new ones. We are very fortunate to have exhibitors with a common goal of making sure they do everything possible to befriend our guests and answer the questions of even the smallest child. Our hope is to give everyone that comes a good time and to preserve the traditions of the past while looking forward to the future, by making new friends with all that come out to our reunion. Morning ceremonies start the day at 9:00 am and we also have our wonderful noon whistle, If you have never heard the sound, it is very moving, and may give you goose bumps. Noon whistle is a tradition that leads back hundreds of years, if you want a lesson on it, we have a wonderful story teller for an announcer, is a joy to learn from. Also, you don’t
want to miss the fan favorite, the sparks show, something that is awe inspiring and a rare treat to see.

Our dates for the reunion this year are June 30th, 2016, until July 3rd 2016. The reunion is held at 6129 Reed Road in Ansonia. 8 miles north of Greenville in the scenic York Woods. Flea Market vendors open at 9 am and run until around 7pm. We have various food vendors, as well as something for the whole family.

Young Forest Martial Arts

Greenville, Ohio's Premier Martial Arts Academy

We are an educational program that develops moral character and teaches life skills to children and adults. We do this through the ancient Chinese Martial Art Kung Fu. Kung Fu is more than kicking and punching, it is an art based on concepts and principles that can be applied to everyday living; in essence, it is a life style.
