Who we are.
Founded in 1959 as the Washington Township Park District, the Centerville-Washington Park District now operates eight community parks, nine nature parks and 33 neighborhood parks encompassing 1,000 acres in Centerville and Washington Township. Each of the 50 parks has varying amenities. You’ll find a sprayground, a dog park, a skatepark and an archery range; top-notch sports fields; hiking trails and nature preserves; and more, all within the boundaries of one suburban Ohio community of 57,000 people. Thanks to the foresight of the Park District’s founders, there is a park to explore within walking distance of every home in the community.
In addition to maintaining the parks, the Centerville-Washington Park District also offers outdoor recreational programming throughout the year for the community to enjoy. Several large special events are planned each season — from Big Rig Gig to Haunted Trail to the Holiday Luminary Walk! A popular day camp is held each summer, encouraging children to learn about nature and enjoy the outdoors. We are passionate about creating positive memories for the families of Centerville and Washington Township!
