Sandusky Park features athletic fields, a picnic area, and a paved pathway. The park is a lovely place to take a walk near Blackwater Creek. Benches provide resting spots for young and old to admire the many native plants and trees, including viburnum, hypericum, sycamores and dogwoods. The path curves gently along Blackwater Creek, and ends at a large open green field perfect for pick-up soccer games! 

With over 21 acres of parkland to explore, Sandusky offers plenty of space for families to spend some time outdoors exploring the flora and fauna native to the area.

History

Sandusky Park is Lynchburg’s wildflower park! During the spring, summer, and into the fall the park’s ecologically friendly “no mow zones” are a riotous sea of wavering colors as native wildflowers come in and out of bloom. The park was opened in the 1980s with a multiuse athletic field. In the early 1990s the nearby Sandusky Pool was purchased by the City and became a parking lot. Eventual plans call for the Creekside Trail to extend to Sandusky Park and eventually Sandusky Middle School. Currently the Creekside Trail is being extended to Lynchburg College.
