Garbry Big Woods Reserve

About this Location

Garbry Big Woods Reserve is located on Casstown-Sidney Road and the Sanctuary is located on Statler Road east of Piqua. The park is open from 8 a.m. to sunset every day of the year. An educational arboretum is located on the Reserve site south of the picnic shelters. This arboretum contains a variety of native Ohio trees and gives the public a chance to learn about their state trees by leaf, bark, or bud. The Reserve area provides three picnic shelters, which can be reserved by calling the park district office, a stocked fishing pond that requires no fishing license, and hiking trails. There are mowed areas around the shelters for games and restroom facilities. In keeping with the Park District’s mission of environmental protection, the restroom facility is one of the first of its kind in the state of Ohio that utilizes wetlands as its sanitary filtration system. Wetlands are known for their filtering and purification ability. The Ohio EPA, as well as other groups in the state, are interested in this wetland application for sanitation use. To broaden your experience and to help protect this unique natural site, please use the pathways provided and please obey the rules of the Sanctuary and Reserve.
