The 63-acre Hills & Dales MetroPark is filled with picturesque creeks, rolling hills, dense woods (including an outstanding example of Ohio natural forest), wildflowers, and wetlands, all conveniently located just south of downtown Dayton. Originally a gift from John Patterson (co-founder of the National Cash Register Company), this urban park has been a natural refuge for Daytonians since 1907. Located at 2655 S. Patterson Blvd., this park’s lush natural atmosphere provides a variety of activities for visitors of all ages. In addition to the monument honoring the park’s founder, Hills & Dales also includes architectural remnants of the Old Barn Club where 100’s of Daytonians came to socialize in the early 20th century, the looming Stone Tower, and “Staged Gates,” a piece of landscape sculpture by Mary Miss that was added in 1979. This Dyaton Original is one of the areas most historic parks!
