In an effort to keep Fall Creek Woods as natural as possible, please click on the rules and regulations link to the right. Pets of any kind are not allowed in the natural area. This is to respect and protect the wildlife within Fall Creek Woods.
Part of the property is made up of 12 acres of previous farmland, which is being restored to native grasses and wildflowers to attract pollinators such as bees, butterflies, and hummingbirds. A closed canopy of ash and sycamore trees covers the trails that will run along the creek, creating the perfect spot for wildlife sightings during any season. The park’s most unique features are the picturesque deep ravines and high bluffs that overlook Fall Creek, a feature that Fall Creek Township Trustee Doug Allman believes will differentiate the park from others in the area.
“Fall Creek Woods will be unlike any public park or nature area in Hamilton County,” stated Doug Allman. “the topography will provide a natural and serene experience to hike. We want to keep the park natural, so people are able to view wildlife in its natural state.” Allman further thanked the Fall Creek Township Board, along with former Trustee Jeff Hern, for their vision in developing the park.
