Battelle Darby Creek features more than 7,000 acres of forest, prairies and wetlands. It stretches along 13 miles of the Big and Little Darby creeks, both State and National Scenic Rivers. Besides the areas surrounding the creeks, there are also over 1,600 acres of restored wetlands and prairies. Bison have been reintroduced to the park and roam freely within two enclosed pastures.
Nice park. We came to see the small herd of bison. We didn't think we were going to see them, but did as we were driving away from the park so I didn't get a pic of them. My husband stopped at the restroom, which was very nice for a park. The park ranger/worker even said they sanitize them 4 times a day. He was also very helpful in directing us to the nature center. They were having an Easter egg hunt for kids when we were there in late March. There were lots of walkers and joggers. It seems very family friendly. There was a sign warning people not to leave their valuables unattended, but it didn't have an unsafe feel. The nature center was closed, but you could still walk outside and get some information. There was a metal bison that was pretty artistic. Lots of prairie grass and tress. Ample parking. A pretty area.
