Tips for birding South Russell Village Park
A wetland was created in this park in 2019 and it was already attracting birds in 2020. There was a “wet spot” at the west end of the meadow (Bell Street side) and they scraped it out, added an overflow pipe and some appropriate wetland plantings and the birds came! Should get better as the years go on.

This park is a good place to look for Bobolinks during the late spring and summer breeding season.
About South Russell Village Park
Historically farmed, South Russell Village Park’s peaceful open fields have become an essential habitat for the bobolink, a bird that migrates to South America every year and is noted as a species of concern in Ohio due to habitat loss. The park provides long hiking trails with scenic views through old field habitat and mature forest, and a beautiful pavilion for events.
