French Park


During the COVID-19 pandemic it is important that we practice excellent social distancing and remain alert to the Stay-at-Home Order to slow the spread of COVID-19. During this time Governor DeWine and Dr. Amy Acton have ordered that all parks can remain open but playgrounds should be closed, this includes the Piqua Skate Park.

The following protocols have been taken to enforce these Orders:

  • Playgrounds have been taped off
  • Signs have been posted at all City playgrounds
  • Basketball rims have been removed at Fountain and Mote Parks


The Piqua Police Department will not be guarding these playground areas. It is expected that parents use good judgement to not allow their children to play on these playground areas and practice excellent social distancing.


French Park

This 2-acre park is located at the corner of Water and Steele Streets. The park provides numerous opportunities for both passive and active recreation. Joggers, hikers, bikers, and skaters can use the park as a staging area to link-up with the both sections of the city’s Linear Park. A raised plateau of green space among mature trees provides an excellent site for a lunch-time or family picnic. An open space down below provides opportunities for an informal game of touch football or other games. The park land was generously donated to the city by the French Family.

The park is open from 7:00 a.m. to dusk.
