When I moved to Ossian over 5 years ago, I was delighted to discover the walking trail at Archbold Wilson Park. I had come here from Tennessee and was living very near a large park with a trail. It was a selling point for me there and again for me here.
Last spring when the rain just seemed like it would never stop, the grass got high and it was obviously impossible for the mowing crew to keep up with it. I was amazed, when it finally dried up, how quickly the park was returned to its well-groomed look again.
I have spent many hours walking that trail and I love it more all the time. It is always well maintained. You meet walkers, runners, cyclists, mothers with children and many dogs of all shapes and sizes. It is a beautiful walk with so many changes throughout the seasons.
I do lots of serious thinking while walking, meet nice people and always feel very safe there. It is definitely a real asset for the people of Ossian and the surrounding area!
