This 435-acre park is conveniently located in the suburban area of West Chester. Voice of America (aka VOA) Park features a 35-acre stocked lake and 2.5 mile scenic path trail around the water and up Butler County Rd. Visitors can fish, walk, jog or just sit and enjoy the view from the patio at the new Ronald Reagan Lodge. Available WiFi allows guests to combine business and pleasure in and around the Lodge. There is also a pavilion for picnic lunches and gatherings or just people-watching. Wiggly Field dogpark allows guests and their four-legged friends the opportunity to get out too. Prefer to explore wildlife? Much of the park's acreage remains grassland and was designated as an "Important Birding Area" by Audubon Ohio. This park is open year-round and during winter, the 65 foot sledding hill is a delight for adults and kids of all ages! The Voice of America Park has something for everyone!
The Ronald Reagan Lodge includes a reception hall, meeting room, outdoor pavilion and retail facility. The Lodge features three rooms available for rent for either business or social events. The beautiful setting allows for more formal entertaining or can be scaled back to a more homey feel as well. Reserved events or programs hosted by MetroParks can feature catering from a selected list and/or adult beverages as well. The Wheel House seasonally provides fishing permits, boat rentals, bait and tackle.
Check the website regularly for all of the events scheduled at this park including a summer concert series, KiteFest and Dogfest.
"My dog and I are regular visitors at Wiggly Field. She has a great time running free and playing with the other dogs, and I enjoy meeting fellow pet enthusiasts. From time to time, we get to interact with families who don't have their own pets, but come by to play with the dogs. It's a great resource for everyone.
I recently started commuting to Indianapolis a couple times a week, and thought it'd be great to take my dog along as she's great company in the car and I have mornings free while I'm there. Unfortunately, I found out that all the dog parks in Indy charge significant fees. Certainly more than I was willing to pay for a few month's worth of a morning or two at the park. I'm glad that Wiggly Field is seen a resource for our whole community, and that anyone is able to come and visit. I support the levy so we can keep our parks free, and keep them well maintained...!"
