The Epworth Park Cottage Owners Association invites you to visit historic Epworth Park. The park continues to instill the peace and serenity that offers an escape from the fast-paced lifestyle that we know today. Nestled among a grove of majestic oak trees are sixty-one quaint Victorian cottages that invite you to walk in the footsteps of our ancestors, and to experience the happiness and tranquility of days gone by.

Enjoy a picnic by the lake. Throw a line in the water and try your luck at catching a bluegill, bass, or catfish. Children will enjoy the large, fenced playground. Bring the sports equipment for a friendly game of basketball, baseball, or volleyball, and even your skateboard, to test your skill at the skateboard park. Or, just walk along the sidewalks winding through the cottages, and imagine a much simpler time, when folks sat on the front porch and greeted neighbors and visitors as they walked by.

The East Ohio Methodist Church Conference owns the seventeen acres of ground that comprise Epworth Park. The Village of Bethesda leases eight acres, including the lake, from the Conference. The park is open from April 1 through November 1 of each year.

Picnic tables are scattered throughout the park.
