Hocking County – Tar Hollow Water Day Event Has Giant Slip and Slide, Foam Cannon, and More


Laurelville Ohio – Twisting park and forest roads pass through deep ravines and dense woodlands. Scattered shortleaf and pitch pines growing on the ridges were once a source of pine tar for early settlers, hence the name Tar Hollow. Dogwoods, redbuds, and a variety of wildflowers color the hillsides in the springtime. Fall’s pageant of color is spectacular but during the Summer the park hosts events including the Water day event
