Huber Heights is definitely a great place to live, work and play. Whether it is the 1,000+ acres of active and passive parkland or one of the numerous recreational programs, the city strives to provide leisure opportunities for anyone who lives or visits the community. The City of Huber Heights, Montgomery County Parks and Recreation Division, and FiveRiver MertoParks all operate facilities and provide programs in the city. They are as follows:
The City of Huber Heights Parks System
The City of Huber Heights Parks System consists of 14 park areas totaling over 133 acres of land. Many of the parks are presently developed offering playgrounds, shelters, ball fields, courts, picnic areas, and trails, while there are plans to develop the remaining parks at a future date. Various youth sports organizations use city parks for their leagues such as baseball, softball, football, and soccer. The City has five shelters in various parks that may be reserved for a special event or a family outing. Shelters are reserved on a first-come, first-served basis.
Carriage Hill MetroPark & Farm
The City of Huber Heights is fortunate because it has two MetroParks within it’s boundaries. Just north of I-70 is Carriage Hill MetroPark Farm and on the northwestern boundary of Huber Heights is Taylorsville MetroPark and The Great Miami River Recreation Trail. All of these facilities are yours to explore.
Carriage Hill MetroPark Farm is dedicated to the protection and stewardship of the Miami Valley’s natural and cultural heritage with nearly 900 acres dedicated to natural and historic settings.
Taylorsville MetroPark combines recreational and educational opportunities. Taylorsville’s 1300 acres brings people closer to nature and all it offers…enhancing our quality of life.
Enjoy over 13 miles of trails — hike through a pristine old growth hardwood forest, wander through prairies or enjoy panoramic views of the Great Miami River.
The Great Miami River Recreation Trail is your road to adventure. Bike, hike,
run or in-line skate on this 5.5-mile scenic paved trail. Winding along the Miami-Erie Canal and the Great Miami River, this trail takes you to areas of the park formally inaccessible to anyone but the most avid hiker. This trail allows the user to safely pass under US 40 and Interstate 70, and cross over the Great Miami River on a pedestrian bridge.
City Council has recognized the Metroparks and recreation system as being an integral part of our community, which enhances the quality of life for the residents of Huber Heights and its visitors. For more information please contact the Carriage Hill Visitors Center at (937) 879-0461.
