Burrow Oak State Park

Burr Oak State Park in Glouster will be temporarily referred to as “Burrow Oak State Park" in honor of Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow, who grew up in nearby Athens, Ohio.

COLUMBUS — Ohio Governor Mike DeWine and Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR) Director Mary Mertz on Monday temporarily renamed three Ohio State Parks to honor current and past players of the Super-Bowl-bound Cincinnati Bengals.

“We are incredibly proud of the Bengals and everything they have accomplished this season,” DeWine said. “The whole state will be rooting for Cincinnati on Sunday, and this is a fun way to show support for the orange and black."
