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 fields transitioning 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 in the meadows.
