Overview

Sycamore Park
4082 State Route 132
Batavia Ohio 45103

Sycamore Park is one of our largest and most well-known parks. Along with its four shelters and paved trails, the park offers East Fork River access and a peaceful nature escape at the adjacent Wilson Nature Preserve. The park also features a tennis court, a pickleball court, accessible playground and updated restrooms. Reserve a shelter for a gathering or stop by to let the children walk on the paved riverside storybook trail. The park is available for the use of larger events, such as festivals, fairs and small expos.

Kayak Launch

Sycamore features a kayak launch onto the East Fork branch of the Little Miami River, with ample parking and easy, flat access to the water.  As part of the redevelopment of Sycamore Park, work on the kayak launch is slated to begin in 2023. This will include better ramp access and a sun deck that will serve as a space to sit and enjoy lunch or a rest along the river.

The James L and Frances Wilson Nature Preserve is adjacent to Sycamore Park, encompassing 145 acres along the East Fork branch of the Little Miami River, including a 25-acre island in the river. Our large forests, fields, and abundant wildflowers provide habitat for a variety of wildlife. Over three miles of trails provide options for a short and peaceful riverside walk or a steeper ascent that leads to a scenic view of the East Fork River Valley.
