      November is here and winter is just around the corner but that doesn't mean that you have to go into hibernation.  There are some amazing new things to see in your parks.  If you haven't already visited the Robert J. Shook Bikeway Bridge in Farrington Reserve, make sure to stop out and take in the beautiful views of the Great Miami River - from that vantage point, you just might catch a glimpse of the bald eagles that live along the river.

      If you love to trail ride, we have good news for you.  We just opened our first bridle trail at Honey Creek Preserve in Tipp City.   The four-mile trail is the result of a partnership between the Park District and the Miami County Equine Initiatives Task Force.  If you would like to see photos of the ribbon cutting ceremony, visit our Facebook page. 

      On Saturday, December 6 from 6 to 9 p.m. we will be holding our annual Evening of Lights at Charleston Falls Preserve.   It is a great way to kick off the Holiday Season.  In addition to the lighted falls, there will be refreshments, children's crafts, seasonal music and more.  Don't forget to bring a canned food item to donate.  We hope to see you there!
