In 1996, Trotwood merged with the surrounding Madison Township, thereby extinguishing Madison as a separate entity. This merger resulted in the creation of a Trotwood neighborhood (Townview) that is completely surrounded by the City of Dayton. Several smaller sections are attached to Trotwood by only a roadway or a small strip of land. The merger also added a large rural area to this suburban community consisting of farms, golf courses, and large rural estates.

Wolf Creek, a tributary of the Miami River, runs through Trotwood providing fishing and many scenic areas. Also along Wolf Creek is the only state park in Montgomery County. The 3,000-acre (12 km2) Sycamore Woods State Park offers horseback riding, hiking, hunting, and Group camping.
