The River Center at Bicentennial Commons, Middletown, is situated along the Great Miami River Trail and serves as a reprieve for bicyclists, runners, and pedestrians alike. The building is 3,006 square feet in size and sits on 3.2 acres of land. The facility is equipped with a kitchenette, conference room (Great Miami Room), restrooms, two park offices, and 40 parking spaces.
Future plans for trail connection from Middletown to Franklin are expected to come on line in 2020-21. This will connect the Great Miami River Trail to Dayton and beyond for nearly 80 miles of continuous trail, making Middletown a major bike destination.
This $1.4 million project was made possible in part by a $1 million State Capital Grant administered by the Ohio Department of Natural Resources.
