Buckeye Woods Park is the largest park in the system. Named for the grove of Buckeye trees found along the stream in the Schleman Nature Preserve, the park provides a variety of experiences for visitors.

The east side of the park is the setting for soccer and softball fields available for use by reservation. A picnic shelter is also available for reservation at the park. Picnic tables and grills are provided for individual family picnics. A three-acre pond offers opportunities for fishing. A paved, accessible path provides a great place to walk for exercise or enjoyment as you circle the pond and wooded areas of the park. There are two playgrounds at Buckeye Woods Park.

Cross the bridge from Buckeye Woods Park and enter the Schleman Nature Preserve to walk wooded nature trails. Named for the family that donated the original acreage, this site will remain undeveloped for the enjoyment of nature and wildlife viewing in accordance with their wishes.

The Chippewa Inlet Trail is a 3.95-mile long asphalt and crushed-limestone trail. The trail runs from State Route 42 in Lafayette Township, through Buckeye Woods Park, across State Route 162, to Chippewa Road.  From upland pine stands to wet woods and restored wetlands, this trail has a variety of interesting habitats for users to experience. The trail loops around a wetland restoration project on the north side of the park.
