Sycamore Trails Park, the City's largest, will be home to a major improvement project very soon. Known as the "gem" of Miamisburg, Sycamore Trails Park is the City's only "nature park" with nearly 75 acres of trails and forest. Sycamore Trails is also one the City's oldest parks. Home to shelters that have served generations of family reunions, birthday parties and gatherings, Sycamore Trails is connected to and the ground are home of the Sycamore Trails Aquatic Center, tennis courts, basketball court, and playground accessed off Maue Road. This project will bring these three distinct areas together, and provide updates that will serve many generations to come.
With an updated roadway that connects the three areas, the road access at the corner of Heincke and SR 725 will be removed and converted to a pedestrian only entrance. This will greatly improve the safety and access into the park. In addition, the roadway modifications will include additional parking in both the north and south ends of the park, as well as Sycamore Trails Aquatic Center.
Amenity updates to playgrounds, shelters and sports courts will bring new life and vitality to this park. The shelters in the northern portion of the park were built in 1972 and have served this community well. We are excited to bring updates and improvements to safety, access and play that will serve this City for generations to come.
The Sycamore Trails Disc Golf course will be redesigned as part of this improvement project. Help us redesign this course by taking a few minutes to provide your feedback through a survey. In approximately one month, we will have an update to provide about the course design with your feedback included in the planning process.
