Hedges-Boyer Park is Tiffin's community park, consisting of 78 acres of parkland with a creek running through it, and bridging the gap between Coe St. and Summit St. The park is home to many year-round special events, including Tiffin’s Fourth of July Celebration, the Cross Country Carnival (2nd largest cross country race in the nation), 5K benefit races, the Heritage Festival, and much more. The park has six picnic shelters, with approximately 10 picnic tables and a grill at each shelter. The park is also home to a large historic barn that can accommodate larger groups in an enclosed, but rustic environment. All the shelters are available for use by the public on a first come first serve basis, but can be guaranteed by making a reservation.
Hedges-Boyer Park includes three baseball/softball diamonds, two football fields, basketball, sand volleyball, tennis and pickleball courts, and an 18 hole disc-golf course.
In 2022, a new 10,000-square-foot inclusive playground opened for children of all ability levels. The playground has two parts – one section aimed at kids ages 2-5 and another for kids ages 5-12. The equipment includes two new playsets, swings, a 33-foot zip track, jungle gym, a "communications board", shaded benches and tables and more. The playground includes expressions swings where parent and child can swing together so parents can see the expression on their child's face. Under the equipment is a poured-rubber base designed to lessen the impact of falls but be firm enough to provide easy access to wheelchairs or people who may have difficulty walking on an uneven surface.
Hedges-Boyer Park also has an entertainment band pavilion stage, allowing for community concerts and performances. The park contains several miles of paved walking/biking trails, and is the trailhead for the Rock Creek Trail leading to downtown Tiffin.
Hedges-Boyer Park is home to the Municipal Swimming Pool, featuring a 300,000-gallon main pool and a wading pool for our younger visitors. The main pool includes a large spiral slide, two diving boards, and a lily pad obstacle course.
