Shale Hollow Park is a 211-acre park that is part of Preservation Parks of Delaware County. It is defined by the creek that runs through part of the property before it connects to the Olentangy River, a state scenic river. Visitors love the park for the 30-40-foot shale cliffs that line the side of the creek, and for the round rock formations called "concretions." The park includes 2.1 miles of walking trail, through forest and meadow, a creek to wade in, picnic tables, and reservable indoor meeting space. Park naturalists hold periodic free programs in the park, especially those highlighting the geology of the park. Shale Hollow Park is open year round, 8 a.m.- 9 p.m. March – October, and 8 a.m.- 7 p.m., November – February.
