FAQ

Can I reserve a park for an event?
As of now, our park areas are available on a first come first served basis.

I saw a coyote, what do I do?
Coyotes are an invasive species, but are very common in Ohio. To keep them from returning be sure to remove any outdoor attractants (like garbage or pet food). If they are still returning after you’ve removed those, consider calling the Division of Wildlife to find a local tracker (1-800-945-3543). For more tips click here.

Are their vending machines at the parks?
We do not currently offer vending machines at any of the Pierce Township Parks.

Are there water fountains at the parks?
Yes, however we do turn them off for winter (between November and March).

Do any of the parks have restrictions on dogs?
None of our parks have breed or weight restrictions. However, we do require you pick up after your dog and keep them on a leash when not in our dog park.

Master Plans

In 2016, the Pierce Parks Committee drafted a Master Plan meant to be a look into the future, a vision, of what the Pierce Township Parks & Nature Spaces might be. The Plan outlines park design standards, future park improvements, and recommendations of what Pierce Township residents have indicated they would like to see. The Committee far exceeded their expectations, and in 2021, the Master Plan was updated to include new initiatives and improvements as they look into the Park’s future.

Before beginning the Pierce Township Off-leash Dog Park in 2018, a Master Plan was drafted as a guide to help set goals, fund raise, and design the dog park. Download the pdf and read how they achieved their goals and what goals are still to be accomplished. www.facebook.com/PierceTownshipDogParkl
