Two neighborhood parks, Pottenger and River Road Park offer sheltered picnic areas and swing sets to idle away a sunny afternoon. Nearby, Miami-Whitewater Forest, operated by the Hamilton County Park Board, adjoins the area and offers golfing, swimming, fishing, camping and horseback riding. Two private golf courses and a swim and tennis club are in the immediate vicinity. The Great Miami River borders the township on the east, providing fishers some prime angling. Brookville Lake is 20 minutes from Harrison, offering all outdoor recreation plus provisions for boating and sailing.
