Named after the local community, River Styx Park is over 83 acres in size and was opened in May of 1996. As erosion by a glacier and water shaped the meandering River Styx Valley, the upland ravines of River Styx Park became a quiet haven for flora and fauna. 

River Styx Park is a popular get away for hundreds of visitors each year. These visitors fly from the rain forests of Central America to spend their summers in Medina County. Who are they? Migrating neo-tropical songbirds! This park is one of the few remaining sites in Medina County where these birds nest each year. The combination of open fields and mature forests makes the area attractive to these fascinating birds.

A .75-mile nature trail guides you through the mature forests of River Styx Park and provides great opportunities for bird watching. The month of May is the prime time to see the greatest variety of birds.

A .5-mile paved loop trail circles the three-acre pond found at this site and passes through a wooded area. The pond is fed by a unique aeration tower. The park district periodically stocks this pond for family fishing enjoyment with large mouth bass; blue gill; some channel catfish; and, in the spring and fall, rainbow trout. A daylily garden donated by the River Styx Garden Club provides a splash of color along the trail during the summer months.

Visitors can enjoy a family picnic at the park or reserve a picnic shelter for group activities. Paved paths make the restrooms and shelter at this park fully accessible.
