The Delshire Preserve
The 13.4 acre Delshire Preserve was created in 1996 and is owned by the Western Wildlife Corridor. Read about how this preserve came to be here.
The Delshire Preserve is bound by Cloverhill Terrace on the North, Hillside Ave. on the south, the cul-de-sacs of Eagle Point, Redstar and Fairdale on the East and Fiest Manor, Gertrude Rose and Delhi Swim Club on the West. The terrain is hilly with multiple small creek valleys with grade variation from approximately 580′ – 855′ above sea level. The preserve is primarily deciduous growth, and has a large expanse of perennial Bluebell Flowers on the eastern slope of the creek that dissects the property. The Delshire Preserve is home to an approximately 200 year old Burr Oak on western slope. Deer are a common sight on the property.
Primary access to the property is on the north side of Hillside Ave approximately 0.5 miles west of the intersection of Hillside and River Rd.
