Mill Creek MetroParks Parking Lot Closures

Multiple parking lots and asphalt surfaces throughout Mill Creek Park will be temporarily closed for the MetroParks annual asphalt sealing and preventive maintenance project.  The work is scheduled to begin on Monday, September 19, and will continue for approximately two weeks.  Lots will be closed for several days, and will reopen once vehicular traffic is permitted. Several of the prominent lots and surfaces scheduled for work include the following:

·         Ford Nature Center
·         Lanterman’s Mill (Mill and Covered Bridge Area)
·         Newport Trail Link
·         Mill Creek Golf Course (North)
·         East Newport Boat Launch. 

Several minor lots along East Newport Drive, New Cross Drive, and Bears Den Drive will also be affected.  While the lots are closed, the facilities they support will remain open and accessible for public use.  Rentals and scheduled programming will not be impacted by this project.  Please use alternate parking lots to access these facilities when lots are closed. 

In the event of inclement weather, the work schedule will be delayed and adjusted accordingly.
