At the Nature Realm, 16 acres have been developed into an arboretum, featuring a collection of more than 300 varieties of trees and shrubs.
With its canal, meandering river, two ponds, and a large swamp, Firestone is one of the finest protected wetland areas in Summit County. Fish, crayfish, frogs, and turtles are found along the streams. The swamp, forest, and wet meadow shelter foxes, raccoons, skunks, muskrats, rabbits, mice, voles, and moles, along with many beautiful summer and fall wildflowers.

In 1929, the family of Charles Francis Brush Jr. donated 272 acres in the Brushwood Area. Along Old Mill Trail, hikers can see a marker which says, in part, "To all those who love as he loved the far sky and smiling land." Much of the park was developed during the 1930s with work-relief crews.
