There are several opportunities for higher learning available in Wooster. Perhaps the most famous is the College of Wooster, a private liberal arts school that has consistently been recognized for its high quality of education and unique experience for undergraduates who are serious about academics. The College of Wooster has a strong impact on the city's cultural landscape, which lends to the city's "college town" feel when classes are in session. In addition to this school, Wooster is home to Ohio State University's Agricultural Technical Institute and Ohio Agricultural Research and Development Center.
A Cultural Beacon in
If you are a fan of opera or orchestral music and hope to move somewhere that allows you to see either or both of these musical styles performed live, Wooster will be a great fit for you. Even though you might not expect a small midwestern city to offer so many cultural opportunities, Wooster is home both to a symphony orchestra and a professional opera company. Thanks in large part to the College of Wooster, the Ohio Light Opera and Wooster Symphony Orchestra regularly delight local audiences with music performances and special events.
Wooster Memorial Park
Known locally as Spangler Park, Wooster Memorial Park is a great place to get outside and enjoy unspoiled natural beauty. This park features several miles of hiking trails that offer visitors the opportunity to see the best of Ohio's natural landscape all year round, from fall color to spring blooms and everything in between. Best of all, the trails in this park are only open to pedestrians. That means that if you want to take it easy and go for a relaxing stroll at Spangler Park, you will not have to worry about a mountain bike barreling around a corner.
