— PARK at the Reservable Picnic Area. This main event area is the 3rd picnic area on the left after you enter the park. Look for signage and balloons. Tram rides will be rounding between the Reservable Picnic Area and then Nature Center.


• The tram will be running every 30 min starting at 11am and picking up the last group at 3:30pm.

• The tram departs from the Picnic Area, tours for 20 min, before stopping for drop offs at the Nature Center. We encourage you to tour the wonders of the Blacklick Woods Nature Center with your family! After exploring, take the 1 mile hike back to the Picnic Area or await the next tram.

• Tram seats are first come, first served. Each tram can hold 20 standard seats + 4 open spaces for wheelchair users. Children are permitted on an adult lap at the parents discretion.
