Ft. Amanda State Park is a great place to walk along the river and take in the river and the granite marker which was erected in 1915 at the site of the original fort being used for the War of 1812. There are ravines and facilities with picnic tables for your convenience. It is located southwest of Lima on state route 198.
There is an Agerter Road Access park for those that would like to canoe or fish, it encompasses three acres. Remember if your dog likes to swim, take necessary precautions to have a safe outing. A life jacket for your four legged friend should be a necessity.
