The Starkey Pavilion now has heat! The new seasonal rates for Pavilion rentals are effective November 1, 2013. These rates will apply to rentals from October 1 through March 31.

Located at 1230 Pontius Road, the Mary Virginia Crites Hannan Park sits at the corner of SR 188 and Pontius Road. Considered the crown jewel of our park system, this 72-acre park is the newest and offers a natural park experience.

Current shelter facilities: 2 shelter houses and the Starkey Pavilion, the only four-season rental in our city park system. Please note that the Starkey Pavilion does not have central air. Please call the park office at 474-9502 to make shelter reservations.

Visitors enjoy the area's only "Boundless Playground", butterfly garden, a bird watching station and fire pit.

Take the opportunity to walk or bike the park’s 1.2 mile paved trail. Enjoy a hike through the woods on the hiking trail.

Cool off with the park’s splash pad, which is open from Memorial Day weekend through Labor Day weekend. The Splash Pad is now closed for the 2013 season. The Splash Pad will operate from 1PM - 7PM when it opens for the 2014 season. The opening date is still pending.

Get your "Focus & Finish" bummper stickers for $10 each from the Pickaway County Welcome Center. The proceeds will help fund the proposed information station at the butterfly garden. The fundraiser's project coordinator is Ace Elsea.

The Friends of the Circleville Parks welcomes volunteers. If interested, please contact for more information.
