"The Medina County Park District seeks to enhance the quality of all life through education, conservation and the protection of natural resources."
The Medina County Park District was formed in 1965 under Ohio Revised Code Chapter 1545. The district's boundaries include all of Medina County, except Hinckley Township. Since its formation, the park district has acquired and developed land in areas throughout the county. Emphasis has been placed on acquiring land for open space preservation and preservation of unique natural resources.
The park district is governed by a three-person board of commissioners that is appointed by the Probate Judge of Medina County. These persons serve without compensation and are responsible for the ongoing operation of the park district. The board appoints the staff that oversees the day-to-day operations.
The Medina County Park District plans a wide variety of educational and recreational programs throughout the entire year. These programs are held at our parks as well as our Wolf Creek Environmental Center and offer wonderful opportunities for people of all ages to learn about the environment and enjoy nature.
