Lebanon Oktoberfest is a fundraiser for Miller Ecological Park. This event has been instrumental in raising funds to complete improvement projects within the park.
About Miller Ecological Park
Miller Ecological Park is a 97-acre community park that was dedicated in 2013 as Lebanon’s only ecological park. The park offers nearly three miles of trails, including both gravel and natural surface. There are three pollinator friendly gardens, a rain garden at the edge of the parking lot, a Butterfly Garden maintained by the Lebanon Garden Club, and a Girl Scout Garden. The park features native prairies, a Nature Playscape, a sledding hill, the Shawn Steinke Memorial Labyrinth that is open for thoughtful meditation, and Eagle Scout projects that include a bird watching blind, benches, exercise features, kiosks and numerous bridges.
