Sol Arnovitz Park is the City’s largest park yet is among its least developed parks. The Play Xenia process indicated interest among Xenia citizens in nature-related activities such as hiking. Furthermore, Xenia Rotary raised funds in 2014 for disc golf course equipment for Sol Arnovitz Park.
Pursuant to these interests, the City constructed a hiking trail system and a disc golf course in this scenic park, complete with two pedestrian bridges over Shawnee Creek. With the help of volunteers, the park has been converted from an underutilized, undeveloped property into a popular destination for the disc golf enthusiasts as well as families and individuals seeking a peaceful walk in the woods.
The disc golf course is a unique new amenity for Xenia, providing access to a fun, affordable activity that is growing in popularity among numerous age groups. The course is will be a destination not only to Xenians but to visitors as well, with the potential to attract tournaments.
