Farrington Reserve is a passive, natural site along the water’s edge with 2,500 feet of Great Miami River access.  It offers excellent opportunities for boating, fishing, exercising and viewing wildlife along the river.  This park conserves land within the riparian corridor to protect water quality and wildlife habitat.  The wooded sections along the river provide critical habitat for wildlife travel, food sources and migrating birds.  It also provides visitors with a parking area and access to the Great Miami River Recreational Trail for biking and hiking.  Eventually the park will provide an important link that connects the Troy and Piqua sections of the bikeway.

History

Farrington Reserve was acquired in 2009 with the assistance of a Clean Ohio Fund grant administered by the Ohio Public Works Commission. Clean Ohio funds were made available by the voters of the State of Ohio when they approved a bond issue that was set up to assist in the purchase of green space for the purpose of conservation and for the development of bike trails.  Since the original passage of the first bond issue and continuation of the program through a second, the Miami County Park District has received numerous grants to provide the citizens of Miami County with public parks and multiple sections of the Great Miami River Recreational Trail.
