Kyle Filicky and Jared Walker of CEC Pittsburgh recently led a nature walk in Poland Township Park for the 225th birthday celebration of Poland Township, Ohio. The 115-acre park features 1.5 miles of nature trails, a wetlands area, and four gardens: a butterfly garden, a native prairie garden, a hosta garden, and a fern garden.
Poland Township Park Board chairman Ken Filicky said the celebration was the first large event held at the park. The township is located in the southeast corner of the Connecticut Western Reserve and was marked by surveyors on July 23, 1796.
The marker designated the area “Town 1 Range 1,” or the first 5-mile-by-5-mile area surveyed in the Connecticut Western Reserve. It was later named Poland Township by its first settlers, honoring the Polish generals who assisted the U.S. in the Revolutionary War.
