Brunswick, OH is the largest city in Medina County. It is a perfect place to raise a family and spend your days in nature. And if this city is full of something that's nature.
The town is home to a number of parks that offer residents a chance to get outdoors, enjoy the fresh air or just do different sport activities. Among the most popular parks is Central Park, which features a playground, picnic areas, and walking trails.
Another one is called Plum Creek Park. It has a basketball court, a sand volleyball court, and a fishing pond. Wow, basketball and volleyball! Those two can only mean one thing - lots of attractive girls and guys. Oh, sorry, that's two “things.” It seems someone is about to meet their soulmate (so romantic today) or just have an adventure - not so romantic! Hey, we never judge. Choose what is best for you!
After our little speech that has nothing to do with our theme, let’s get back to parks!
Besides these, Brunswick also has a number of smaller parks, such as Walnut Woods Park and Hinckley Reservation. These parks give you a chance to relax and enjoy the beauty of nature. In addition, they provide an opportunity for people to get exercise and spend time with family and friends. And what is better than that? Whether you are looking for a place to play sports, take a hike, or just relax in the sun, Brunswick's parks have something for everyone.
Let’s visit some of them!
This park offers the typical design of a neighborhood park which others have been compared to. It features a mixture of active and passive use. The natural open space provides the opportunity to observe grassland birds — sparrows, bluebirds and hawks. What a magical scene!
Brunswick Lake Park
Brunswick Lake Park boasts beautiful maple, ash, oak and beech trees. There are also a variety of wild flowers.
Visitors to the park can spot ducks, frogs, turtles, deer, mink, squirrels, and of course, different types of birds. The lake itself is over 13 acres and is home to many fishes.
A one mile walking trail including two boardwalks encircles the lake, providing residents with easy walking access to the Susan Hambley Nature Center, the nearby Southlake neighborhood, shopping and dining at Brunswick Town Center.
This community park has a large parking area and some wooded areas along a creek which offer opportunities for wildlife viewing. The park is named after Capt. Theodore P. Neura, who was the first serviceman from Brunswick to die in the Vietnam conflict (Dec. 12, 1963). The park was dedicated in 1975. What a special, but sad life story “in the background.”
The last one on our list is North Park. This park provides a laid back atmosphere. Schools, scouts, families and civic organizations take advantage of its wide variety of year-round activities, programs and opportunities.
Isn’t a day in the park a great way to spend your free time?
