Dedicated to protecting the Sawmill Wetlands in perpetuity.
Sawmill Wetlands are special!
The Sawmill wetlands are an emerald jewel in a jungle of concrete. These wetlands are considered high quality by the Ohio EPA and are some of the few remaining wetlands within I-270. The Sawmill wetlands are the only large publicly accessible green space in the area. It has a breeding population of smallmouth salamanders and a type of insect (a midge) that has not been recorded anywhere else in Ohio.
In addition these wetlands:
Improve water quality
Process thousands (if not millions) of storm water
Are an excellent educational tool used by local schools
Provide habitat to hundreds of species
The Sawmill Wetlands is located at the intersection of Bent Tree Blvd and Federated Blvd. Currently, the park is only open by appointment. You can contact the ODNR to ask for permission to gain access to the park.
The Friends of the Sawmill Wetlands have permission to open the park one weekend a month for Sawmill Saturday’s.
