Parks Recreation and Open Space

       Carroll County is fortunate to have a variety of land forms and open space. Located at the boundary of the Appalachian Plateau and the Glacial Plains Carroll county is in an area of geological transition between the glaciated north and the hills and valleys of the south and east. We are very fortunate to have an abundance of natural resources that define its rural landscape. Large continuous tracts of land both in public and private ownership provide the environments for an abundance of white tail deer, turkey, grouse, dove, beaver and an occasional black bear. Two large public lakes managed by the Muskingdom Water Shed District provide boating opportunities and sport fishing while Ohio Department of Natural Resources manage areas for public hunting. Include in this mix The newly formed Carroll County Park District and we will undoubtedly have a valuable and all encompassing recreation system.
