MetroParks Overview & History
MetroParks of Butler County offers residents in the county and surrounding areas, outdoor space, and recreation at 10 parks and over 4,500 acres across the county. MetroParks began as the Butler County Park Board in 1955 when a group of concerned citizens came together with the common purpose to preserve and restore natural areas in Butler County. Today, park customer/owners can take joy in leisure and recreational activities happening park wide.
