Ravine Park

Ravine Park

American Indians frequented this

area, rich in natural resources.

The ravine provided water from

natural springs, marl for lime, and 

clay for bricks for nineteenth-

century residents of Attica,

platted 1825. City became owner 

of ravine 1906 when local

business and professional men

organized to donate fifty-five

acres for a public park.

(Continued on other side)

City purchased thirty-five

additional acres 1911, adding to

eastern end. Park has served as

center for social and recreational

activities. Attica Chautauqua

entertained many here 1907-1928.

Donations, grants, and volunteers

over the years have added 

swimming pool, nature trail, bridges, 

and other structures improving

park as community asset.
