About Greenspur Nature Preserve
Greenspur, located on OH-203 2.5 miles north of Prospect, is a seven-acre wooded area. It is on the spur line from the old Interurban line to the old power plant along the Scioto River. It is largely second-growth woodland.

The local match for this land was donated to the park district by former Marion County Commissioner John Watkins, and the balance was provided by a grant from the Ohio Department of Natural Resources.

A local Boy Scout troop occasionally uses this park for campouts.

A small pond on the property provides a wetland.

There are plans that this park will eventually be a stop for the C, D, & M rail-trail, which will come north from Delaware, Ohio.
