AES Ohio to host Day in the Park 2023 with Five Rivers MetroParks

October 17, 2023

Partnering with Five Rivers MetroParks, AES Ohio Day in the Parks is an annual day of service. Our people are our power, and we dedicated this day to volunteer together helping revitalize the parks we enjoy year-round across the Miami Valley. AES Ohio volunteers will focus their work on a variety of projects at Cox Arboretum and Gardens MetroPark to beautify and enhance these important community assets.

The Cox Arboretum and Gardens MetroPark is a 189 acres arboretum and park is one of many Dayton area parks within the Five Rivers MetroParks system. The arboretum contains a shrub garden with over 500 varieties of trees and shrubs, butterfly house and garden, children's maze, conifer knoll, crab apple allee, herb garden, ornamental grass collection, perennial garden, rock garden, water garden, woodland wildflower garden, and 2.5 miles of walking trails.
