The Friends of the Little Miami State Park (FLMSP) is an all-volunteer, non-profit organization working to maintain and improve the 50-mile Little Miami State Park paved trail. We work closely with the Ohio Dept. of Natural Resources to preserve the park’s natural river setting while creating a safe, enjoyable experience for all trail users.

FLMSP conforms to the highest industry standards applied to non-profits, making it well qualified for grant consideration and for donor confidence. The Friends volunteer their labor and skills because we love the trail and want others to enjoy it as much as we do!

Consider joining us on—or off—the trail.  We're always looking for volunteers.  You can pick up brush and litter on an Adopt-a-Trail team, share a special skill or resource in Special Ops, or help promote our work in the community and through media. Everyone is welcome; every effort helps.  The amount of time you devote is always your decision, and your work will always be sincerely appreciated. 

FLMSP helps Morrow improve Phegley Park

2023.09 PhegleyPark playground 800

This spring, the Village of Morrow made major improvements to Phegley Park on Center Street between Main Street and Kibbey Avenue with the addition of state-of-the-art playground equipment in the center of the park. This has made the park a destination for kids and families arriving by auto, by foot, and by bicycle via the Little Miami Scenic trail that runs along the north edge of the park. To support the village efforts, the Friends of the Little Miami State Park made the village our focus effort for 2023, adding park entry point amenities along the trail at Phegley Park and into the village along the old railroad station.
