Please note that this hotspot, north of County Line Road, is in Delaware County. The parks south of County Line Road are in Franklin County.
The wetlands are hard to find. It is on city property but is not a normal park. I will explain two methods to enter the wetlands. The first is to park your vehicle at Towers Park (corner of County Line Road and North Spring Road) and walk west on County Line Road about .25 mile. Walk until you see a wood fence on left (south) side of road. College Knoll pond will be across street. Enter around the fence and just follow the grass path. This path goes around the wetland. The second is drive down Juniper Avenue (off County Line Road) about .25 mile. On your left you will see a pull off for the wetlands. Park and enter wetlands.
This appears to be a shallow marsh that is loaded with vegetation such as algae and pond lilies. I did not see much as far as amphibians but I did see flying insects such as bees and dragonflies. This is a beautiful area.
