Description

Gardening is good for our air, our water, wildlife and us. At Wegerzyn Gardens, we actively promote landscaping with native plants in balance with traditional garden selections. Home gardeners will find a wealth of design ideas, plant combinations and cultivation techniques suitable for the Miami Valley and kind to the environment. Kids will appreciate and interact with the wonders of nature in the Children's Discovery Garden. Venture into the woodlands on the Marie Aull Nature Trail or the Swamp Forest Boardwalk and immerse yourself in the botanical richness of the Stillwater River Corridor.

Stillwater River Trail

Lush in spring and summer, and ablaze with color in the fall, the Stillwater River Trail provides cyclists, runners and walkers serene and diverse terrain on a paved surface. Ride south to visit Triangle Park and DeWeese Parkway, home to the Boonshoft Museum of Discovery. Ride even further south to reach the picnic shelters, spraygrounds and playgrounds at Island MetroPark. Ride north to Sinclair Park, just west of Shoup Mill Road. Return to Wegerzyn for a relaxing stroll through one of the gardens.

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. There is a putin/takeout at Wegerzyn Gardens MetroPark.
