Description

Urban woodlands like those at Hills & Dales are critical to the health and quality of life within our cities. They are dynamic ecosystems that provide clean air and water. This historical urban forest has been a natural refuge for Daytonians since 1907.

Filled with picturesque creeks, rolling hills, dense woods, wildflowers and wetlands, the park was designed by renowned landscape architects the Olmsted Brothers. Now beautifully restored to its original glory by Five Rivers MetroParks, Hills & Dales offers many unique features for today’s active lifestyles, including miles of trails and walkways, Adirondack-style shelters, a scenic pond, preserved wetlands and remnants of historical architecture.
