Secor

A natural symphony of tall trees, rolling sands, wet lowlands, meadows and prairies.

From tall timber to second growth forest, rolling sandy areas to wet lowlands, Secor is a place of distinct contrasts. Add meadows, prairies and northwest Ohio’s largest concentration of native dogwood and you’ve got a beautiful array of nature just outside the city. 

Located on the edge of the Oak Openings Region, Secor is the northern terminus of the still-developing Oak Openings Corridor, a chain of public and private lands preserving the rare habitats that make up this fascinating region. The first leg of the Moseley Trail, which will connect these natural areas, is completed from Secor to Wiregrass Lake Metropark.

Many distinctive trees are a legacy of Secor's past as an arboretum, while Wolfinger Cemetery, the Richfield Township cemetery, is named for the area's founding family.

Park amenities include large picnic areas, playing fields, indoor meeting rooms and picnic shelters, a dedicated cross-country ski trail and a Window on Wildlife.

Barrier-free Playground

Secor is also home to the park system's most extensive barrier-free playgrounds, located between the Lone Oak and Meadowview areas, and accessible from both. There is another playground at the Walnut Grove area.
