Five Rivers Outdoors, the outdoor adventure initiative of Five Rivers MetroParks, strives to provide access to outdoor recreation, create a more active lifestyle for the region, enhance the natural park experience, and transform the Dayton region into an adventure destination and sustainable center of outdoor education excellence.
Five Rivers Outdoors attracts people to Five Rivers MetroParks by creating innovative outdoor programming in such core categories as backpacking, paddling and climbing courses and trips, events such as Gear Fest and the Miami Valley Adventure Summit, and building sustainable mountain biking, backpacking and whitewater facilities. Providing residents with better access and opportunities to resource-based, human powered recreational activities, Five Rivers Outdoors contributes to the quality of life and enhances the Dayton Region by creating and projecting the image of a vibrant, active community.
Through leveraging existing outdoor-oriented assets and developing capability through a network of outdoor oriented partners we can build a larger more cohesive outdoor community and provide greater economic viability of outdoor recreation in the Greater Dayton Region.
