Heigel Park, which was generously donated to the township, is located on Catawba Woods Road and provides two tennis courts, a basketball court, a baseball diamond, a sledding hill and playground equipment. The township also owns and operates a public boat launch with access to West Harbor and Lake Erie. Catawba Island State Park is owned by the State of Ohio and John Braun Park is a privately owned park used by the community and other organizations.
The Cedar Meadow Preserve was purchased in 2005 by Catawba Island Township with assistance from the Clean Ohio Fund and the Black Swamp Conservancy. The Cedar Meadow Preserve is over 62 acres of mixed meadow, forest and wetland. It sits behind the Township offices and fire hall, adjacent to both Northeast Catawba Road and West Catawba Road. It was, at the time of purchase, the largest remaining parcel of land available for preservation on Catawba - unbroken by backyards, roads, or buildings.
