Hills and Dales MetroPark
Today the visitors to Hills and Dales MetroPark owe thanks to John H. Patterson, founder of the National Cash Register Company. John Patterson believed in outdoor exercise and its benefits to health and human productivity. In improving his land, he hired the sons of a famed landscape architect, John Charles Olmsted and Frederick Law Olmsted Jr. who accentuated the park’s picturesque creeks, rolling hills, dense woods, wildflowers, and wetlands. Through the years, the park became overgrown with invasive honeysuckle. After years of cleanup efforts, in 1999, 63 acres of Hills and Dales became part of the Five Rivers MetroPark System becoming Hills and Dales MetroPark. Today the historic urban park features Adirondack-style shelters, a boardwalk, picnic areas, trails, and a monument to John H. Patterson which overlooks the park and his former land.
