The Miamisburg Bicentennial Celebration has something for everyone and that includes the outdoor enthusiast. Nature hiking, kayaking and paddle boarding are offered for free during the celebration.
Join us for a guided hike through Sycamore Trails Park on Wednesday, June 20 at 9 a.m. All hiking abilities are welcome. Participants will learn what the park may have looked like 200 years ago when Miamisburg was founded. Activities include discovering native and non-native vegetation, examining creek fossils and learning about the history of the land.
Please meet at the Sycamore Trails Playground between 8:30 a.m. and 9 a.m. at the corner of Maue and Ashley Drive, next to the Sycamore Trails Aquatic Center at 400 S. Heincke Road. Please bring water and comfortable hiking shoes for this short hike through the park.
For those who prefer to experience downtown Miamisburg and the Great Miami River from the seat of a kayak, join us at Case Landing, near the Linden Ave. Bridge on Sunday, June 17 from 4-7 p.m. and Wednesday June 20 from 12 Noon-4 p.m. Wright State University will provide kayaks and stand up paddle boards at no cost. Basic paddling instruction is provided on shore before venturing onto the river. Participants can try out paddling between the bridges of Linden Avenue and 725. All participants must sign a waiver and wear a life jacket (provided). Please bring water, comfortable athletic clothing, shoes that can get wet and don’t forget the sunscreen.
