Posted: 12 Apr 2010"With no park levy to provide financial stability, MetroParks' revenue is subject to the ups and downs of the general economy. ... Its showcase park, the 435-acre Voice of America Park in West Chester Township, has become especially popular in the past few years. Located off Cox Road near Interstate 75, the park features a stocked 35-acre lake encircled by a 1.4-mile paved walking/biking trail, fishing, boating, athletic fields, picnic areas, a dog park, a 65-foot-high sledding hill and the Ronald Reagan Lodge and Boathouse. Although the park has been open for only seven years, the revenue it produces already covers its operating costs." Steve Kemme, Cincinnati Enquirer, 10 April 2010. At the site of the former VOA Bethany shortwave transmitting station.
