Oakes Quarry

My oldest has told me that I could be a tour guide of our area because I know a lot of places.  So during April, I’m going to share some of those local sights beginning with A and then ending with the letter Z.  I’ll be sharing these sights Monday through Saturday.  On Sundays, I’ll be continuing to share my Disney photos.

So where are these local sights?  They are mostly in the Dayton, Ohio area.  Some of them are in Columbus or the Cincinnati area.

Oakes Quarry is located about 5 to 10 minutes from downtown Fairborn.  It’s part of the Beavercreek Wetland Association.

The park was originally surfaced mined for limestone.  The Oakes’ family bought it in the 1990’s.  They then donated the land to Fairborn in 2003.

It is the second largest park in Fairborn.  The park has praires, wildflowers, and fossils.  Our family enjoys hiking in the park.  The boys enjoy climbing on some of the rock piles and skipping rocks in the water holes that develop after big rainstorms.

Enjoy my photos of the park.  These were taken on a warm winter day.
