Boarding will begin at 1:30 p.m. Seating is limited and is available on a first come, first serve basis. The tour is free and open to the public.

This tour will take a comprehensive look at one of Youngstown’s most unique neighborhoods. Participants will gain insight into its 100+ years of history and learn about current developments and plans to revitalize this area as well. Stops along the tour include Mill Creek MetroParks’ Ford Nature Center, YNDC’s Urban Roots Farm, and a historic home under renovation by YNDC. Tour guides will discuss the role Idora Park played in the development of the area, and a short walking tour of Ottawa Avenue will profile the architectural history of three to four houses.
