The Ohio State Parks Foundation, established in 2021, seeks to protect and enhance Ohio’s 75 state parks—from the shores of Lake Erie all the way to the waters of the great Ohio River. These green spaces are a powerful outlet for recreation and wellness. Each year, thousands of visitors camp, hike, paddle, fish, and bike in these treasured parks.
The Ohio State Parks Foundation’s inaugural project is to improve access throughout the park system and foster inclusive environments for recreation. Future projects for donor support will provide accessibility and infrastructure enhancements so every visitor will have extraordinary experiences in Ohio’s great outdoors.
