In the heart of Oberlin is Tappan Square. A National Historic Landmark public park that opened in 1885. Trees, beautiful trees and a beautifully landscaped, easily accessable experience. If you love nature, college towns and need to decompresss this is the place!

This was a nice place for a quiet shady walk. Very small and ends at the buildings of the university.

This square in the center of town is a renowned arboretum of a couple of acres in the middle of uptown and college campus. A relaxing, historical, beautiful place of peace in a quaint setting.
