Friends of Warren County Park District

Warren County Board of Park Commissioners Update: In light of recent developments, the Warren County Park District has closed their offices to the general public. (The parks themselves are still open to the public at this time, but the restroom facilities are closed.)

The opening of the venues at Armco Park, Golf Course, Boat Dock and Softball Complex have been postponed until a later date – yet to be determined. All previously scheduled public Nature Programs are on hold. Thank you for your patience in these unique times. 

All questions or concerns can be addressed by calling the following: Warren County Park District Office – 513-695-1109 Warren County Armco Park Office – 513-695-3980 (0)
Daily Challenges: As we all are learning to cope with the challenges of Covid-19 precautions, I am sharing a daily challenge on our Facebook page to help you stay grounded and focus on some happiness. Today's challenge is to share a picture of a rainbow! https://www.facebook.com/WarrenCountyNature/

Safe Outdoor Options: If you or your kids are feeling trapped inside, how about visiting one of our Warren County Park District properties? The number one suggestion per the Ohio Department of Health is to GET OUTSIDE AND PLAY! Visit the link to see more fun options: Family Activities to Do During COVID-19
  • Please remember to continue to follow preventative measures — stay home when sick, use cough and sneeze etiquette, and practice hand hygiene as often as possible.
  • Even when you’re outside, remember to practice safe and proper social distancing. Try to stay at least six feet away from others in the parks.
  • Take along some hand sanitizer as the Park District restroom facilities are currently closed
