A NOTE FROM THE MANAGER

Mark Giblin

Greetings from Ravine Gardens State Park! Summer is winding down and fall is approaching which makes for a nice walk or bike ride around the Park.  Visitors can enjoy a 1.8 mile walk around the ravine, let the kids play on our playground or use the challenging exercise course.  Looking for a unique place to hold an event, our 14,000 square foot civic center makes for a nice wedding reception, birthday party or group outing.  For more information about the park or to learn how to become a volunteer, please call 386-329-3721.

Exciting things are happening around the park,  wagon tours are being offered every Saturday from 1pm till 3pm.  The Friends of Ravine Gardens will be offering a wagon tour around the park for a small donation.  For more information, please check the “Events” and “Ranger Programs” above or you can also call the park for more information. 

 

The Ravine drive will be periodically closed to vehicle traffic due to some projects in an effort to clean up the park.  If you plan on coming to Ravine Gardens and would like to drive through the park, please call ahead of time to ensure the 1.8 mile loop is open to vehicle traffic.  For information about our events or the park, please call 386-329-3721
