FIT Family Series @ Armco Park FINAL Confirmation

This 311-acre park was acquired through a cooperative effort involving the Warren County Commissioners, Warren County Park District, Turtlecreek Township, Otterbein Community and assisted by a grant from ODNR for public recreation.

The park offers an executive 18-hole golf course, an adult softball complex, access to a 110-acre lake for fishing and boating, rental pavilion (enclosed with seating accommodations of over 200) tennis, basketball and sand volleyball courts, horse shoe pits, corn hole, natural area, shelters, restrooms, concession stand, picnic tables and grills.
