About Sharon Woods Metro Park
The 14-acre Schrock Lake serves as a focal point of this 761-acre Metro Park. The lake provides the setting for kids’ and seniors’ fishing, bird watching, and picnicking.
The park is a mixture of forests and open fields. You’ll see numerous towering oak, hickory, and beech trees. Many seasonal pools associated with the swamp forest communities are present and provide critical spring breeding habitat for amphibians and other wildlife.
Bicyclists and joggers will enjoy the park’s four miles of paved trails. Those seeking a quieter walk will enjoy nearly three miles of nature trails that wind along streambeds and wetland.
