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 Community Sanctuary
Follow High St past the playground, after the road turns East, you will find the entrance on your right. It takes between 5-8 minutes from the homestead.
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 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.
Ruby Coffee Picnic Area
Upon exiting (or entering depending where you start) folks can grab a cup of coffee from Ruby Roasters on Saturday and Sunday. There are picnic benches for folks to enjoy the prairie restoration along the river. Judah Studio is open on weekends and Alchemy Concrete has beautiful works of path art throughout this area.
