The Ashland County Park District (ACPD) is currently composed of 16 parks. Each park offers a unique experience and features distinct characteristics such as spring-fed ponds, old-growth forest, endangered plant species and vernal pools. In addition, the parks support a variety of recreational activities including hiking, bird-watching, canoeing, dog-walking and hunting.
