The City of Scottsville and Dugas Community Park, through a partnership application, have been awarded funding through the Recreational Trails Program. We are pleased to add an additional 1.1 mile trail that will tie into our Dumont Hill Nature Trail. Keep your eyes open for work on the Grasslands Section of the park starting this fall. This will open another 50 acres to public use. As always the terrain will be tough due to our significant elevation changes throughout the park. The match funding has been provided by individuals in Allen and Warren Counties, so be sure to thank donors when you are able to hit the trail!
In addition to the trail, we will be creating a primitive campground that will serve as the transition area between the Dumont Hill and Grasslands sections of the park. The primitive campground will feature defined spaces available for overnight rental for individuals or groups.
We will begin taking reservations for the primitive campground when construction is near completion.
Tree House Village
The Tree House Village is sure to be a unique addition to the park. It will allow kids of all ages to experience life in the trees! The Tree House Village will allow visitors to learn about the life cycle of trees, their many uses throughout their life and after harvesting.
Stable and Horse Riding Trails
Horses have been a constant with the Dugas family and at the Dugas Farm. We look forward to continuing this tradition by offering a riding stable and miles of trails just waiting for you to saddle up and see the park.
Mountain Bike Trails
Another amenity for the thrill seekers-mountain biking trails with elevation changes to challenge any rider. If the trails are popular when constructed, Dugas Park might be able to open Allen County’s first bicycle shop!
Dugas Community Park is excited to announce its partnership with the Allen County Farmers Market. We are currently pursuing grant funding, as well as accepting donations, for the Farmers Market structure. The Farmers Market will provide access to locally grown foods, seasoning and value added commodities. It is a great link to our rural heritage and to continue farming aspects within Dugas Community Park.
