About Emily Traphagen Preserve
With its tall trees, wetlands, pond and meadows, beautiful Emily Traphagen Preserve provides a respite from the suburban development around it. The park, with its proximity to the Scioto River, attracts waterfowl, such as mallards, kingfishers, wood ducks and great blue herons.

At times, you may spot many white-tailed deer that call this park home. Watch for woodland wildflowers in the spring, and Queen Anne’s lace and other meadow flowers in the summer. In the natural play area, children can play in an earth-covered tunnel, sit at log tables and jump from stump to stump as they enjoy nature in whole new way. The reservable picnic shelter includes a fireplace for use in cooler weather.

Emily Traphagen Preserve resulted from the desire of Dr. Donald Traphagen to memorialize his wife, Emily, through the preservation of the property she loved. He was instrumental in helping Preservation Parks protect this oasis of open space.

The park was opened to the public in 2003.
