With almost 400 acres the Rentschler Forest MetroPark includes about a half-mile frontage along the Great Miami River, acres of woodland, remnants of the old Miami-Erie Canal, a prehistoric Indian earthwork, a reconstructed wetland and ample opportunities for a wide variety of outdoor recreation activities. Many picnic sites, four covered picnic shelters, children’s play areas, soccer fields, a youth group camping area, and miles of hiking trails are found here. The Great Miami River Recreation Trail is accessible by the lower parking lot that connects to Hamilton. There will be an eventual extension through the park and along the river corridor to Middletown. New flush restrooms are also available thanks to a grant that enabled the Stone House to be re-purposed for this important amenity.
