Englewood MetroPark: Where History, Nature, and Art Converge

Englewood Dam lies along the Stillwater River and holds the Miami Valley Conservancy District’s largest dam.  It owes its existence as the solution to the Great Flood of 1913.  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 to the Aullwood Gardens and the Audubon Center of the National Audubon Society in western Ohio. 

Englewood MetroPark Features

Englewood Lake: The centerpiece of the park is the serene Englewood Lake, a man-made reservoir. Visitors can enjoy fishing, boating, and kayaking on its peaceful waters. The lake's shoreline is also a haven for birdwatchers, with various species of waterfowl and songbirds making it their home.

Englewood MetroPark Waterfalls:  This park features the Martindale, Patty & Oaks Falls.  All are peaceful falls along the Stillwater River. The sound of rushing water and the sight of the falls are both soothing and invigorating.

Hiking and Trails:  Englewood MetroPark boasts a network of well-maintained hiking trails that wind through woodlands, wetlands, and prairies. The Twin Valley Backpacking Trail offers a more challenging trek for experienced hikers. These trails not only provide exercise but also offer opportunities to spot local wildlife.

The natural beauty of Englewood MetroPark has long been a source of inspiration for peaceful art prints.  For me, the play of light on the water, the vivid colors of the changing seasons, and the tranquility of the landscape make it a haven for art enthusiasts.
