Huge, primitive, Hocking Hills-like new metro park opening this year
Start stretching now because you’ve got a long hike in a brand new metro park soon. Metro Parks plans to open a 150-acre park in northeastern Franklin county this year which has been likened to Hocking Hills.
The park will be bound by Little Turtle Golf Club to the south and Big Walnut Creek to the west. The yet-to-be-named parkland of water, cliffs and ravines will be highly primitive—no decks, no picnic tables, no bathroom, reports The Dispatch.
Metro parks purchased the land for $5.3 million, using $3.4 million of Clean Ohio money to help.
