Swaim Park offers a variety of passive and active spaces for fun play and for a quiet respite.
Todd Pond, with its natural landscape, ducks, geese, and pathway is often used for fishing and reflection. Each June, the Montgomery Kiwanis Club holds a fishing contest for kids here. There is also an overlook and decorative fountain on the hillside inside the park that the Montgomery Citizens’ Leadership Academy Class of 2008 built to offer seating for people to enjoy.
Swaim Park is part of an original farmstead with the Wilder-Swaim farmhouse still standing on the corner of Zig Zag Road and Cooper Road. This historic building is c. 1832 and is open to the public for special tours and events throughout the year. The Montgomery Historic Preservation Association maintains historic documents, photographs and artifacts in this home and during tours, the public can touch and feel the history of our home town coming alive. To complement the farmhouse, the Lazy Daisy Garden Club maintains an heirloom garden in the backyard.
Nestled amongst the landscape around the pond is a large gazebo built in partnership with the Blue Ash Montgomery Rotary Club. The gazebo is a great place for social parties, and for pictures too, and can be reserved online for convenient use along with either of the two park shelters in Swaim Park.
Swaim Park is the location of Swaim Lodge which is also available to reserve. Lodge Information
