“Canal Lock Park is the newest completed park in the City. It is located at 325 E. Main Street in downtown Tipp City near the old canal. The bike path runs through this park. There are benches and a picnic table for your enjoyment. See the old canal lock remnants and an old canal boat that sits near the old Roller Mill. Check out the plaque that tells a bit of the history. This also connects you to the Great Miami Riverway Trail, which is paved and great for walking, running, and biking. ”

“By far, my favorite park EVER. I took my children here all of the time. The park offers all of your traditional park activities, slides, swings, merry-go-round, etc. Tennis courts and basketball courts. Also located at the park, is the Tipp Aquatic Center, and a disc golf course! You can hike from the Park to the The Nature Center. The Nature Center is located at the north end of City Park, offers a scenic river overlook, ponds and walking trails. It is also included on the bike path!”

Pool
“The best public pool in the area in my opinion! It's been recently updated and is well maintained with two main pools, a kid area, and fun water features. It's also connected to the paved bike path, just a short walk from downtown.”

“This is a really unique park. It was a farm field that was converted back into the wildlife area it was before it was settled in the 1800's. Planted with all native species of plants and trees, this is a beautiful place to walk. It is right in the middle of town! There is a pond and a couple miles of trails. It is good for walking and running, but not riding bikes. The trails are all gravel so use your own discretion with strollers.”

“One of my favorite places to go... Brukner Nature Center opened to the public in 1974 and is the vision of Clayton J. Brukner, local inventor and philanthropist. The 165 acre preserve is traversed by 6 miles of hiking trails and visitors can enjoy an Interpretive Building, Wildlife Ambassadors on display and the 1804 Iddings Log House ”
