What started as a simple Welcome sign for visitors entering the Sugar Grove area has grown into a six-acre sculpture park. The Flight of the Hawk Park is situated just off State Route 33 and features life-size metal sculptures of Ohio’s native wildlife. Visitors to Flight of the Hawk are met by a turkey vulture, wild turkeys, white-tailed deer and the expansive 2,500-pound red-tailed hawk perched on its nest 42 feet above the ground. The hawk features a 14-foot wingspan and is composed of 3,000 torch-cut pieces that were carefully shaped and welded into place by local artist Ric Leichliter, who has constructed all the sculptures in the park to date. Individuals, groups and corporations interested in commissioning additional wildlife sculptures may contact the Historical Parks office at (740) 681-7249.
