Keehner Park is a 123-acre established park property nestled along the east fork of the Mill Creek. It offers beautiful scenery during every season.
The park was acquired in 1976 as a result of a special parks tax issue approved by voters and funding from the federal Land and Water Conservation Fund Program that is administrered by The Ohio Department of Natural Resources. Keehner Park is named for the Keehner family, one of our community's founding farming families.
Keehner Park features extensive woodland trails following the creek. The creekside trails offer a beautiful scenic hike with a collection of wildflowers specimens and a glimpse at history with an extensive collection of fossils and clay deposits. Visitors are asked to leave all the creek's treasures as they find them
The Keehner Park Amphitheatre with its wooded backdrop is an ideal location for concerts, theatrical performances, and much more. Each year, the amphitheatre is home to the Fifth Third West Chester Concert Series, as well as other community-sponsored outdoor performances. Activities at the amphitheatre are free and open to the public. Lawn seating is provided, or guests are welcome to bring along a blanket or lawn chair.
The "Cabin in the Clearing" is a 1800s log cabin located in the park. It is the site of various programs throughout the year, including Pioneer Christmas.
Keehner Park also features playgrounds, tennis courts and athletic fields. Picnic shelters are available to reserve.
