Description

The city of Englewood serves as the western boundary for a large portion of Englewood MetroPark. This nature-filled park, one of the largest in the region, has been part of the Englewood community for more than 50 years.

Generations of residents continue to enjoy picnicking, walking, running, fishing, cycling and wildlife observation in the park’s woodlands and meadows along the banks of the scenic Stillwater River. Each season highlights different wonders of nature, including spring wildflowers, plants and trees dressed in full foliage in summer, the warm colors of fall leaves and frozen waterfalls in winter.

Stillwater River Trail

The northern segment of the Stillwater River Trail, commonly known as the Grossnickle Bikeway, connects the City of Englewood’s Grossnickle Park to Englewood MetroPark. Heading North from Grossnickle Park, the trail passes through the relief spillway of the Miami Conservancy District’s earthen dam, along the base of the dam. The trail winds its way through Englewood MetroPark, where visitors can enjoy hiking, picnicking, fishing, nature play, and even an 18-hole disc golf course.

Stillwater River Water Trail

The scenic beauty of the Stillwater River attracts paddlers and fishermen from all over the country. The river was designated as a state water trail in 2010. It flows through Englewood, Aullwood Garden, Wegerzyn Gardens, and Island MetroParks as well as a few protected conservation areas.
