Fry Family Park

Fry Visitor Center

2533 Farber St. SE,, Magnolia, OH 44643

Amazing views inside and outside the Harold S. Fry Visitor Center show off the rolling hills, fields, and wetlands with wildlife and insects all around.  The Visitor Center was originally the home of Harold Fry and was renovated in 2019.  Harold loved the idea that the family home could be used as a community gathering place where others could enjoy the setting and appreciate nature.  The versatile facility hosts field trips with local schools and groups in the wet lab, library, and classroom, programs and events presented by Stark Parks, and spaces for community rentals.

Due to the park’s rural location and limited light pollution in the surrounding area, parking areas at Fry Visitor Center building and the shelter are part of an Urban Night Sky Place certification.   Parking areas feature low color-temperature lights that produce less light pollution and preserve the natural nighttime darkness
