The Knox County Park District acquired this area, comprised of the Kokosing River floodplain, cropland, and wetlands, in June of 2007. The park currently has 133 acres to explore. Approximately 1000 sycamore seedlings were planted on the site to begin restoring riparian habitat along the river. Approximately 2.7 acres of wetland habitat, in conjunction with the United States Fish and Wildlife Service, was restored in late 2007. With this acquisition, the Park District and its conservation partners protected more than a mile of the Kokosing State Scenic River. The Ramser Arboretum, Ohio Division of Wildlife, and Ohio Public Works Commission assisted the Park District with the acquisition of this land, located in Knox and Coshocton counties. A large-style bat house was installed in 2016 that can house thousands of bats.
