Avian Acres Farm Park

This beautiful 300-acre park contains woodlands, farmland, 80-acres of wetlands, a fabulous fishing pond, a historical barn, and is crossed at the corner by the Jerome Fork. The park district plans to preserve the barn and farm the land since part of our mission is to preserve our agricultural heritage. This park was officially opened to the public in the fall of 2022. A drive way, parking lot, and perimiter trail was created. More development will continue in the future.

This wonderful donation was made by the Taylor family on behalf of Louaine Leisching, which owned the land for the past 50 years. The barn on the property is the oldest documented barn in Ashland County, and was built in the early 1820s shortly after the land was granted to the original owners in a deed signed by President James Monroe. The barn includes hand-cut stone at its base, and hand-hewn beams that were enlarged and raised (made taller) in the 1880s.
