Size: 67.94 acres
Acquired: 1986, 14 acres by fee simple gift from David and Phyllis Goltra.

In 2007, 36 adjacent acres were added to the Golta Preserve with a fee simple donation from J-II Homes. This builder determined that it made more economic sense to donate the property than to spend hundreds of thousands of dollars engineering it for large-scale residential development.
In 2016, The Hillside Trust purchased 17.94 acres adjacent to the Goltra Preserve utilizing Clean Ohio Fund money.
