Armco Park had long been the private recreation area for the workers and employees of AK Steel. The park had been closed to public use since its inception until the grand re-opening on Saturday, March 28, 2009 when Warren County Armco Park was opened to the public.
Warren County Armco Park is nestled among the rolling hills of Warren County, located less than 4 miles of the City of Lebanon near the Warren County Airport in Turtlecreek Township — Lebanon, OH. Warren County Armco Park is situated on historic property originally occupied by the Shaker religious community and located between Shaker Run Golf Course and Otterbein Community.
This 311-acre park was acquired through a cooperative effort involving the Warren County Commissioners, Warren County Park District, Turtlecreek Township, Otterbein Community and assisted by a grant from ODNR for public recreation.
The park offers an executive 18-hole golf course, an adult softball complex, access to a 110-acre lake for fishing and boating, rental pavilion (enclosed with seating accommodations of over 200) tennis, basketball and sand volleyball courts, horse shoe pits, corn hole, natural area, shelters, restrooms, concession stand, picnic tables and grills.
Warren County Armco Park provides triathletes a swim in the Armco Lake while duathletes are treated to a flat and fast run through the park. The bike courses feature the rolling hills of Warren County before heading back to the park for a closing run on the roads within the park.
