Mill Creek MetroParks Preventative Maintenance Closures

Multiple parking lots and paved areas throughout Mill Creek Park will be temporarily closed for annual asphalt sealing and preventative maintenance. Work is scheduled to begin on Wednesday, September 3 and will continue for approximately one week. Lots will reopen for public use when work is completed.

Several prominent areas scheduled for maintenance include East Golf Hike/Bike (Rt. 224 entrance), Newport Wetlands, and trails at Yellow Creek Park and Wick Recreation Area. While the lots are closed, the facilities they support will remain open and accessible for public use. Private rentals of cabins and pavilions will not be affected 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. For more information about this project or Mill Creek MetroParks, visit our website at
