Englewood Dam lies along the Stillwater River and holds the Miami Valley Conservancy District’s largest dam. In 1967, the surrounding lands were opened to the public and was called Englewood Reserve. In the 1970’s, the park was so popular that it had to close at times for congestion. The Englewood MetroPark is adjacent the Aullwood Gardens and the Audubon Center of the National Audubon Society in western Ohio. Today, the park features the Martindale, Patty & Oaks Falls, Big Blue a champion blue ash tree, mature hardwood forest and the Benedict Blincoe Wildlife Observation Area.
