GRANVILLE, OHIO (February 9, 2022) Located just south of Granville on State Route 37, Infirmary Mound Park (IMP) is home to 316 acres of various habitats for wildlife, as well as plenty of recreational space for park visitors. There are many ways to enjoy over 7 miles of trails, whether it be hiking, biking, horseback riding, or birdwatching. Traversing the trails, you will see beautiful, diverse environments including forest, open woodland, prairie, and wetland, that many animals call home. The park district, in conjunction with USFW, planted 36 acres of pollinator flowers and prairie grass at IMP. It will be spectacular as it matures over the next few years. Several small playground areas and shelters are located around the park, as well as our Nature Playscape. Its first phase was completed in 2021, and contains natural features providing unstructured, hands-on outdoor learning opportunities for all children.
Leashed dogs are welcome on the trails, but for off-leash free play and space for your furry friend to run around and socialize, visit our 4 acre dog park, with separate areas for both small and large dogs. Please remember to clean up after your dog!
Another stunning feature of the park is our 7.5 acre Mirror Lake, stocked with several species of fish for catch-and-release fishing. There is also a canoe and kayak access, available for public use.
All open-air shelter houses are available to rent for your own events. We also have available the James Bradley Center, an indoor facility complete with tables and chairs, a kitchen, restrooms, and a screened-in porch as well. See our website for more information about rentals. (www.LickingParkDistrict.com)
