On the Water On the Trail 

Located at the very southern end of the township, this 34 acre park borders the Great Miami River. The Route 25/Great Miami Recreation Trail’s southernmost section runs through the park as it follows the banks of the river. Two thirds of the park is heavily wooded with hiking trails winding throughout the woods while the remainder of the park is green space. One shelter house with picnic table seating for 40 people, overlooks the park’s four acre pond. Fishing is permitted. A second shelter is also available for reservations. This shelter provides a scenic view of the river, seating for 70 people and running water. In keeping with the nature theme of this park, there is no electricity or permanent restrooms available at Crains Run. A portable restroom is located at the south end of the park. There is a quarter mile walk from the north shelter to the restroom. Two paved parking lots provide 50 parking spaces. Adjoining the park property, just across the road at the south end of the park, is a restored canal lock that was built in 1829 as part of the Miami-Erie Canal system. Known as Sunfish Lock, it was restored by Miami Township in 1990.
