Marsh Park expansion plans

Here’s an article in the Hamilton-Journal News about plans to expand Marsh Park in Fairfield, which is located along River Road. The most noteworthy part of the article (in my biased opinion) is the eventual acquisition of the Martin-Marietta gravel pit along the Great Miami River, opposite Marsh Park, and a link to 30 acres of riverside land owned by Butler County MetroParks. It seems they plan to develop the area for “active recreation,” but better river access is a welcome thing, and unwinding 100+ years of hatred for and mistrust of the Great Miami River is a worthwhile effort.

Take care!
