Mill Creek Park plans lot closures

Several 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 Wednesday, July 24, 2019, and will continue for several days. 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:

Birch Hill Cabin
Newport Wetlands – North
Bears Den Cabin
Bears Den Meadow
Bears Den Drive – Picnic
Wick Recreation Area – Ballfield Trail
Lower Slippery Rock
While the lots are closed, the facilities they support will remain open and accessible for public use. This project will not impact rentals and scheduled programming. Please use other 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.
