McKitrick Park is a beautiful 5.18 acre park, located along the Big Darby, on East Main Street/Rte. 161, just east of Uptown Plain City. There is parking and public access for fishing or kayaking/canoeing. McKitrick is a great place to spend time enjoying a picnic, fishing, or just relaxing in the beauty of the natural surroundings.
In recognition of the distinct characteristics of the Big Darby Creek, the Ohio Department of Natural Resources classified 82 miles of the creek as a State Scenic River in 1984. The same area received National Scenic River status in 1994.
The Darby Creek System constitutes some of the most important natural resources in central Ohio. Several species of birds and animals depend on this undisturbed habitat for their survival, including 86 species of fish and 41 types of freshwater mollusks.
The banks of the Darby are lined with native vegetation, remnants of prairie wildflowers and several types of trees. The Buckeye, Oak, Sycamore, Silver Maple and Box Elder all form tree lines that develop into extensive forests. We are very fortunate to have a part of this nationally recognized treasure within our Village.
