This forest park is somewhat less glamorous than the other green spaces inside the city… but it is much bigger. Its 716 acres of oak, hickory and beech trees, and a 14 acre pond, are not landscaped, but they do have the usual amenities you'd expect. There's a 3.8 mile running trail lined with benches and trash cans and the occasional sign telling you which wildlife and plants to be on lookout for. In addition to that there are multiple nature trails. Large open fields are good areas to play ball, and children will have fun at their playground. You can fish in the lake, grill in one of the shelters. In winter, there's a hill perfect for sledding. Bird watchers will have decent time spotting out the avian population.
A superbly large lake and an endless collection of trees of different kinds make the whole location of Sharon Woods Metro Park stunning. You can find trees like beech, oak, and hickory in large numbers here. You and your little ones will be delighted and surprised to spot a lot of amphibians around the waterbeds. You can come here to enjoy a wonderful picnic with your loved ones and domesticated cats and dogs can also accompany you on this trip. Multiple recreational activities such as biking and sledding can also be enjoyed by you here. At the waterbeds, you and your companions can spend hours enjoying fishing. You will surely have a memorable day here.

Sharon Woods Metro Park Reviews & Ratings
The nature play area is lovely. You can take your kiddos back here by Apple Ridge to explore a section of woods. My toddler loved it, though I had to supervise very closely because it is just like hiking through the woods.
Beautiful scenery. Families and friends out enjoying one another, .lots of places to walk. Different parts of the park for different size gathering. I also like that there are posting to educate about the nature you experience while visiting there. But be careful where you step. Lots of natural fertilizer.
I go here often but the 5 stars are for Spring Run trail, which I like the best because it's just under 2 miles but it has 2 challenging inclines to get your heart rate up. The shaded parts of the path make mid summer walks a little cooler. Best way to access it is to go down Apple Run. Keep your eyes open for stray wild turkeys which I've seen before.
Great place to take the family .. and BBQ relax have fun and hit the trails. Forest rangers are always on duty. Very clean and well keep park
Sharon Woods is a great park for kids. There are plenty of trails, and sometimes you'll see wildlife (I've seen deer, turkeys and red foxes). The trails are fairly level so they aren't too physically demanding, and they have lots of open fields and pretty good playground equipment.
