Blue Rock Nature Preserve

Edgar Avenue and Bank Street, Findlay

Blue Rock is not just a name, but a descriptive reflection of its history. In the early 1900s, heavy, bluish clay known as “blue rock” was stripped from the area to make clay targets by the Remington Arms Company.

The 11.3-acre Blue Rock Nature Preserve is now a showcase of natural succession serving as a neighborhood park and oasis and offering an escape from the hustle and bustle of life. Visitors enjoy the small wetland and woods and their inhabitants, hiking and bird watching along the .3-mile Lady Bug Loop Trail, and perhaps a bench and a book. Parking is available.
