Manfield City’s South Park is located at 100 Brinkerhoff Ave. Mansfield, Ohio, and covers about 35 acres. This park is where many historical and summer activities are held. An outside pavilion with an attached kitchen is available for rent. The park has a gazebo, walking trails, a playground, and green open spaces for walking the dog around to enjoy nature. The park features a cira 1800s historical village and monuments honoring our local history, heroes, and Johnny “Appleseed” Chapman. In 2024, the Johnny Appleseed Historic Byway will celebrate the 250th birthday of John “Appleseed” Chapman with a series of events that will highlight South Park’s & Mansfield’s Johnny Appleseed connection and history.

A dedicated group of volunteers from the Richland Early American Center for History ( R.E.A.C.H.) maintain and operate the 1800’s historical village located in the park.

The Blockhouse, originally located in Mansfield’s public square, was one of eleven (11) built in the Mansfield area during the War of 1812 as a refuge from Native American attacks and is the last surviving local structure from that era. The 1812 blockhouse, the 1808 Petersburg Log cabin, and blacksmith & woodworking shops are open to the public seasonally and during special events throughout the year. A community garden is operated by volunteers and helps teach children how to properly take care of fruits and vegetables to give them the necessities needed to make their own gardens at home. To inquire about reserving a park pavilion, events, or questions, please call 419-522-9801. Reservations must be made in person at South Park at 100 Brinkerhoff Avenue Monday through Thursday from 8 am to 2 pm.
