Stricker's Grove is a family-owned amusement park located in Ross, Ohio, USA. Unlike other amusement parks, Stricker's Grove is closed to the public for most of the year. Instead, it is rented out for private functions, such as weddings. The park is only open to the public for eight days of every year, on July 4, four days in mid-July for the Hamilton County 4-H Community Fair, the second Sunday in August (Family Day), Labor Day, and a Sunday in October called "Customer Appreciation Day".

The park opened in 1924 and added its first mechanical rides in 1954. It moved to its present location in 1972.[1]
