About Hisey Park
Hisey Park is located in Corwin, 7 miles east of Lebanon and 8 miles northeast of I-71.It is in Wayne Township at the corner of Corwin Road and Middletown Road, 2 miles south of Waynesville.
Hisey Park was acquired in 2003. With the help of the Hisey family, Wayne Township, and the County Commissioners, we were able to acquire this property and develop it into a wonderful park. This historic farm property was purchased from the Hisey Estate utilizing funding available through the Clean Ohio Grant Fund Program. The park was dedicated in 2005 and will incorporate nature trails, views, overlooks, wetlands and a learning center.
This 158 acres of land, which lies along the Caesar Creek Nature Preserve, features high views from atop the edge of Caesars Creek Gorge, mature steeply sloped wooded hillsides, and floodplain bordering the Little Miami Scenic Bike Scenic River Multipurpose Trail. This property provides a staging area for myriad activities, including canoeing and kayaking, biking, bird watching, hiking and nature walks, and fishing. Additionally, the park includes the restoration of wetlands in the western portion of the site adjacent to the Little Miami Bike Trail. It is estimated that this area will include approximately 10-12 acres of jurisdictional wetlands once it matures. The property lies along the beautiful Caesar Creek Gorge and borders the Ohio ODNR nature preserve south and the Little Miami Scenic River Trail to the west. The park will feature natural trails, a wetland area, and active play fields.
