On the eastern side of Sidney, Ohio resides an impressive park called Tawawa Park which is part of the Sidney Parks and Recreation Department. Originally formed in 1948, Tawawa park draws its name from Tawawa Creek which runs through the area which once hosted a railroad and canal. On this evening, the setting sun paints Benjamin Trail in warm colors which also illuminates the autumn leaves giving Sidney visitors a visual treat!
