Description

Situated on Wolf Creek, it's hard to believe this picturesque natural area is located within the city. Wesleyan provides a gathering spot for friends and family to meet and experience the outdoors just down the street.

Beautiful woodlands, nature trails and vistas of the Wolf Creek surround picnic areas and playgrounds. A paved bike trail leads visitors to Adventure Central, where staff nurture families in life-changing activities that strengthen values, build lasting life skills and empower youth to explore life's possibilities with the aid of the natural world.

Wolf Creek Trail

From the north side of Wesleyan MetroPark, look out for herons foraging in Wolf Creek and recent signs of beaver activity. Popular scenic viewing spots include the pedestrian bridge over Wolf Creek and the paved trail beneath the railroad crossing. Head east on the paved Wolf Creek Trail and wind your way through historical West Dayton toward downtown.
