Heath Area Trails and Parks
Heath has been busy with expansion and improvement of its trail system. Hoback Park offers a wonderful summer walk along the Licking River from Heath High School through the park to Irving-Wick Drive East. With grant funds, the corridor was extended to the River Oaks subdivision and when the bridge on State Route 79 underwent renovation, an under-bridge bikeway was included to allow safe passage across State Route 79. The bikeway connects to the Heath City Water Park and a tunnel underneath Irving-Wick Drive East. In 2008 the path was extended in the Central Ohio Aerospace and Technology Center. In 2012 an expansion of the trail from Heath south through Licking Township to Lakewood High School was completed.
