One of the most scenic parks in Medina County is Allardale, located in Granger Township. Named after Stan and Esther Allard who donated their family farm to the park district in 1992, this rolling site offers a wide variety of habitats and scenic areas.
A tribute to the Allard's commitment to land stewardship, this site boasts one of the finest reforestation areas in the State of Ohio. Beginning in the 1930s, Stan Allard planted trees on areas too steep to farm. Over his lifetime, more than 100,000 trees were planted at Allardale. The nature trails provide visitors an opportunity to view these tree plantings, from the newest stands of Tulip Poplar and Oaks to mature woods. A large stand of native Beech trees is also found here.
