About Phillips Park Complex
This complex includes three parks, Phillips Park, Beaver Creek Wetland Nature Reserve, and Rotary Park. The combined Greene County, Greene County Park District, and Beavercreek Township park features a floodplain wetland. The trail descends to the Beaver Creek. The park features reconstructed wetlands and is the site of wetland research by the Wright State University Biology Department.
Phillips Park was acquired by Beavercreek Township in 1990 from the Phillips Family. The trail northward is the access point for the Beaver Creek Wetlands Nature Reserve, owned by Greene County Park District.
Trail length: Phillips Park and Beaver Creek Wetland Nature Reserve combination loop is 1.26 miles with an eastern spur from north bridge 0.6 miles one way. The Phillips Park trail also has a spur 0.3 mile one way going to Rotary Park.
What to see: This area of mixed habitat provides birdwatchers with great birding opportunities and is often a “hotspot” during the annual Audubon spring bird count. Primary habitats are floodplain woodlands, marsh, wet prairies, woodland pools, the creek and scrub shrub wetlands.
