Trammel Fossil Park – A Real Gem in Cincinnati’s Center
Trammel Fossil Park, located in the northern Cincinnati district of Sharonville, is a 10-acre park that contains a fossil-rich hillside and an unspoiled natural woodland that is available to the public and free to explore for anyone who wants to go treasure hunting.
The R.L. Trammel family made a generous donation to the park in late 2003. When Mr. R.L. Trammel approached the city of Sharonville about giving a 10-acre portion of land, the town was more than delighted to accept his offer. Mr. Trammel had been a developer in Sharonville for more than 40 years, and the city of Sharonville was more than happy to accept his offer.
Today, the park is a one-of-a-kind location where visitors may dig for fossils and learn a little bit about geology and history.
