wolf run park storybook trail

Enjoy a good book while 
exploring the outdoors.  

The Knox County Park District launched the Storybook Trail in 2020 in partnership with the Public Library of Mount Vernon and Knox County through a grant from the Knox County Foundation. The trail is located at Wolf Run Park, 17621 Yauger Road, Mount Vernon. Imagine walking though the park while also enjoying a children’s book. A storybook trail is a fun, educational activity that places pages from a children’s story along a trail to read a page at a time. Children and adults can enjoy the outdoors while reading a book with their family and friends. The book titles will rotate quarterly and new ones will be announced on our Facebook page.  The current book title as of October 15 is Fiona, It’s Bedtime written by local author and illustrator, Richard Cowdrey.

Other partners involved with the trail include Paragraph’s Bookstore, the donor of the books, the Knox County Career Center Construction Management Class, for the construction of the archway sign, and Waters Woodworks for the tree posts and installation. Round Hill Dairy is a collaborative partner as they are providing discounted ice-cream coupons which can be obtained by scanning the posted QR code upon completion of the trail. A guest book is also available through the QR code and all entries are eligible for a monthly prize drawing for a selected book title. These book prizes are compliments of an anonymous donor. We hope you enjoy this new addition to our Park. Storybook trails are becoming very popular throughout Ohio.
