The only public park is Crystal Lakes Park located on Lake Road. In 2008 the Bethel Township Board of Trustees received a $45,000 block grant from Clark County's commissioners for the construction of a small parking lot and gazebo.[4] Its maintenance is the responsibility of the Board of Trustees. However, the Medway Area Historical Society often maintains the park in addition to Medway Park as a community service.

The Crystal Lakes Property Owners Association owns a larger private park that contains playground equipment. The homeowners association also owns a swimming area as well as fishing rights to all the lakes.
