MetroParks of Butler County was established in 1955 and operated as a part-time Ranger Department.
In 1994 the Ranger Department became a Full-Time law enforcement agency with year round Rangers.
Rangers are certified law enforcement officers who have completed over 630 hours on Law Enforcement
training and additional advance law enforcement training. We currently patrol over 4,500 acres of
Park Land containing hiking trails, bike trails, play grounds, water ways and camping facilities.
Rangers are responsible for patrolling by vehicle, foot and bicycle patrol throughout the year.
