Fairy Tale Places in Ohio
What are some other fairy tale places in Ohio?
- Sugarcreek MetroPark. This park just north of Dayton is a 618-acre expanse filled with a diverse habitat of scenic creeks, rolling hills, dense woods, wildflowers, fields, prairies, wetlands, and wildlife. It's perhaps best-known for its trees, however. Within this fairy-tale forest, three commanding oak trees take center stage. The largest of the trio, dubbed the Big Sister, is one of the two largest trees in the MetroParks, with a circumference of 226 inches, a height of 141 feet, and a crown spread of 93 feet. She is hauntingly beautiful during the golden hour.
- Licking Park District’s Infirmary Mound Park is a beloved hiking destination in Central Ohio, offering visitors some of the best scenic beauty the Buckeye State has to offer.
- Highfield Discovery Garden is quite possibly the most magical place in Ohio. This straight-from-a-fairytale playground is full of whimsy and wonder, sure to get your kids excited about the great outdoors. Located within Cincinnati's Glenwood Gardens, you’ll enter Highfield Discovery Garden through the doors of the Visitors Center (which itself looks like a building from Hansel and Gretel). Highfield Discovery Garden is actually comprised of several different gardens and playgrounds, each offering something unique and equally fun. The Trolley Garden, for example, is an outdoor train that runs along tracks built on tree branch bridges and tree trunk tunnels. There are trains everywhere: running above adults’ heads and down within kids’ reach.
- Rentschler Forest MetroPark. Nestled in beautiful Butler County, a fairy tale forest awaits to sweep you off your feet. This is Rentschler Forest MetroPark, a beguiling hidden gem in Southwest Ohio that's straight out of a fairy tale. The park has over 400 acres that include acres of woodland, about a half-mile frontage along the Great Miami River, remnants of the old Miami-Erie Canal, a prehistoric Indian earthwork, a reconstructed wetland, and ample opportunities for a wide variety of outdoor recreation activities.
