Sycamore Park is one of our largest and 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, 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.
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, the kayak launch is slated to be updated in 2022. 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.
