The history of Jefferson Township’s newest park is still evident in its landscape. On Reynoldsburg-New Albany Rd, just north of Jefferson Cemetery, the entrance to Olde Quarry Park slopes down into a deep, wooded valley, the site of an old working quarry. In fact, the railroad viaduct that runs over Blacklick Creek was made from stone from that quarry. The land, formerly known as Plumbers Park, was acquired in 2005 through a Clean Ohio grant, however it took the funding from two NatureWorks grants through the Ohio Department of Natural Resources in 2011 and 2012, as well as in-kind donations and multiple Eagle Scouts projects to complete the park. In total the township has received over $142,000 in NatureWorks funding in order to build a shelter house, parking and an ADA accessible restroom facility.
