River Styx is a scenic woods and pond park with both paved and dirt trails for leisure walks, hiking, snowshoeing. 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 stay in Medina County for the summer. 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 make 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 as well. Fed by a unique aeration tower, the water quality in this pond is the best found in the park system. The park district periodically stocks this pond for family fishing enjoyment. 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 can reserve a picnic shelter for group activities. Paved paths make the rest rooms and shelter at this park fully accessible.
