The park includes a four-acre dog park with separate areas for large and for small dogs. (* please note, the dog park is closed over the winter months and will reopen in Spring 2014). Two and a half miles northwest of Hilliard along the Heritage Trail you will find The Homestead, a public park operated by Washington Township. This park contains many special play areas for children such as a water fort and toddler play area, as well as basketball and sand volleyball for those interested in active recreation.
The trailhead is located in the "Old Hilliard" historic district of Hilliard, which contains many shops and eateries, as well as the Northwest Historical Village, located in Weaver Park.
