WASHINGTON TOWNSHIP PARK
2238 S.R. 756, MOSCOW, OH 45153

Some have called it the best kept secret in Clermont County…what are we talking about…the Washington Township Park. Located at 2238 S.R. 756, this property, formerly owned by the Ohio Operating Engineers, was purchased by the Washington Township Trustees in 1991 for $191,000, or $1,000 per acre (property consists of 191 acres).

The park facility is opened daily from dawn til’ dusk; and, all amenities are free to the general public, with the exception of fishing in the lake. The fishing lake is equipped with a handicapped accessible dock. Individuals from the age of 16 – 64 can fish at the lake, as long as they purchase a Township Fishing Permit. Permits are as little as $5 per day and go up to $30 for a yearly family pass. Senior citizens 65 years of age or older….fish free at all times! The lake is stocked 2 to 3 times per year. Stock includes: walleye, catfish, yellow perch, black crappie, bass, bluegill, & more. Permit money is used exclusively for the purchasing of stock.

If fishing’s not your pleasure, perhaps a leisurely stroll around the lake is more inviting. Encircling the lake is a paved walking/biking track. To avoid accidents walkers/runners are asked to walk counter clockwise & bikers clockwise. Three and a-half times around the lake from your starting point is equal to 1 mile. For the more adventurous, there are some walking trails through the wooded areas. These paths are surfaced with wood chips and are not for the faint of heart.

The playground has slides, swings, tetherball, & various climbing apparatus. There is also a full size basketball court. The park also offers three covered picnic shelters. The largest shelter can fit up to 100 people & the smaller shelters accommodate up to 30. Although these shelters are free to the public, they can be reserved for a minimal fee. Come see the best kept secret in the county!
