One of our most popular parks, Indian Mound Reserve’s 169 acres offer one of the most diverse areas managed by the Greene County Park & Trails. The park is located just west of Cedarville, on U.S. Route 42.

A spectacular natural resource is created with a blend of Cedar Cliff Falls, the Massie Creek Gorge, meadow, woods, river and marsh, creating an amazing view in any season of the year.

Native American history can be learned here with the Pollock Works, a Hopewell structure, and the Williamson Mound, an Adena structure, both of which are hundreds of years old.

The park also offers an extraordinary wildflower display in early May featuring about 125 species, some of which are rare, including snow trillium. It also boasts one of the largest groves of white arborvitae, a tree on Ohio’s protected species list.
