About Ferris Wright Park
This park creates an urban oasis in a sea of intense development near the Scioto River. Tree swallows nest near the parking lot and the usual edge species (Northern Cardinal, Carolina Chickadee, Tufted Titmouse) can be observed in the woods at the edge of the parking lot and fields. Raptors, such as Red-tailed Hawks, can frequently be seen hunting over the fields. Much of the park appears to consist of open field, but this belies the significance of the property, as much of these fields were once Hopewell Earthworks. In addition, a limestone gorge complete with a waterfall and karst features exists on the property, although this area is closed to public access without prior permission. The wooded gorge provides habitat for many Neo-tropical bird species and, in the past, Turkey Vultures have nested in cliff side caves.

About Ferris Wright Park
Located at the northeast corner of Emerald Parkway and Riverside Drive, Ferris-Wright Park preserves and showcases the ancient earthworks, farmhouse, and natural features of the space that are a significant part of Dublin’s history.

The land surrounding the park has been home to many over the years, from indigenous peoples thousands of years ago to some of Dublin’s first settlers and 20th century residents. Ferris-Wright Park contains several earthworks — precise geometric shapes that hold meaning and purpose — constructed by the Hopewell People. An interpretive center located in the historic Ferris family farmhouse honors the past through interactive stations that tell the stories of inhabitants through the years.
