On Trumbull County’s southern border, Girard is an easy-to-navigate town with an open, welcoming atmosphere.
Outdoor adventurers can find walking trails at Girard-Liberty Memorial Park, and Tod Park’s fields, courts, facilities and trails create the perfect recreational environment for the entire family year round.
One of the oldest remaining buildings in Girard, the Henry Barnhisel House, shares tales of community and family history. The 19th-century mansion once served as a home for some of the area’s earliest residents and is now home to pieces of the town's history.
A visit to the Mahoning Country Club for a banquet, tournament or a relaxing game of golf is one to remember. The course presents a challenge for all skill levels, and the scenery is worth it even if you haven’t perfected your short game.
