    In Burton, on the Burton-Troy border, is the 132-acre Eldon Russell Park.

The Statewide Buckeye Trail also runs down the western side of the park. At the entrance you will find the amenities including a restroom, picnic area and even a little playground for the two-legged children. As this is a State Nature Preserve, you need to keep your pup on a lead at all times, and always clean up after him.
