This 348-acre property has beautiful rolling topography with a mixture of grasslands, hardwood forests, a pond, wetlands, and significant stream and wooded riparian corridor.  It provides habitat for an array of songbirds, game birds, raptors, and small mammals.

The park will eventually serve as a trailhead for the Sandy Valley Trail, a major southeast trail system currently under development.  Upgrades to the park and new shelter have been made with funds from the Stark Community Foundation.

Fry Family Park honors the memory of Stark Parks’ first director, Richard Fry, and his family.
