Nelsonville Playground

Nelsonville has a series of parks within 5-15 minutes walking distance of our property. Nelsonville’s playground offers a classic setting for children and adults to enjoy all seasons. During the summer the slide, merry-go-round and swings are ready for you, but you must supply your own tennis rackets, basketball or tetherball. During the winter be sure sure to borrow a sled and take a ride down our famous sled hill!

Nelsonville Parks are an incredible privilege in our area. The commission is dedicated to preserving the land and sharing it with locals and travelers alike. We personally appreciate the connection we can have to our ancestral lands, preserved and cherished.

Nelsonville Community Sanctuary offers a 40 acres to the public. There are two coursed paths through the land. When you enter (pictured above) the trail splits left to a mile long trail or to the right for a shorter trail.

The trails are maintained by our volunteer community members. The grass might get a bit tall, but just do a thorough tick check after. This is where the short and long trails meet.
