Welcome to the Knox County Park District

Welcome to our website. If you’re looking to explore the great outdoors, you’ve come to the right spot. Knox County Park District’s parks, water trails and area bike trails provide the public with an abundance of nature activities such as hiking, fishing, canoeing, biking and picnicking, as well as meaningful educational experiences. Thanks to Knox County voters passing a modest parks and trails levy in 2008, new parks and programs and much progress has been made on developing the Heart of Ohio Trail.  In November of 2012, Knox County voters reaffirmed their commitment to a robust parks and recreation system, when they renewed the park levy. The Board of the Knox County Park District thanks voters for their continued support!

The purpose of Knox County Park District is to:  acquire, conserve and manage Knox County natural resources in a manner that preserves the rural character of the county, while protecting the county’s unique historical and natural resources.  We hope you enjoy our site and leave with an appreciation for what many of our residents and visitors already realize — Knox County Park District is a great place to live and visit.
