Contact: Akil Sharif
Cornell Heights is a northwest Dayton neighborhood bordered by Philadelphia Drive, Cornell Drive, and Wolf Creek. Although this neighborhood features a mix of architectural styles, it is mainly comprised of single-family Cape Cod style homes.
Cornell Heights is home to Wesleyan MetroPark, part of the Five Rivers MetroParks system. Situated on the recently restored Wolf Creek, this park features more than 1.5 miles of hiking trails, a shelter house, playground, fishing, and Adventure Central (a youth education center offering after-school programs, summer day camps, and activity nights, all focused on outdoor activities and building life skills).
The Dayton Northwest Recreation Center, featuring an indoor swimming pool and programming for all ages, is within a short walk or drive along Princeton Drive.
Cornell Heights also features an annual “Feast for Neighbors” that brings families together. Current residents comment on the quiet, connected feel of the neighborhood and proximity to beautiful Wesleyan MetroPark.
