This over 85 acre park is mostly wooded and features a paved path that winds past the pond and loops around a large field. The natural features include a pond, several meadows, trails throughout the site with a tree canopy, large wooded areas, and steep elevation changes. The natural beauty and scenic views offer a distinctly different set of recreational opportunities than any other park in the township. 

Please note that the historic King Mansion and carriage house located adjacent to the park belong to a private residence and are private property.
 Learn about the history of the King Mansion through this video.

StoryWalk
A StoryWalk transforms the pages of a children's book into signs that are laid out on a trail. Following the path of pages is a great way to keep your body and brain active and healthy! For more information on the StoryWalk, including books currently available, please click here.

Archery Range
Deerfield Township received an ODNR Division of Wildlife Shooting Range Subsidy Grant for the development of an archery range at Carter Park. The range opened in 2018 as a free, public practice space and offers block targets at 10, 20, 30, and 40 yards. For more information on the archery range, please click here.

Fishing
“Catch-and-Release” fishing is permitted in the pond. A State of Ohio fishing license is required for ages 16 - 65.
