History and Resources
325 acres comprised of rolling hills both forested and open, the park property also includes portions of Eagle Creek and Silver Creek and their associated high-quality wetlands. Eagle Creek flows through Garrettsville and Eagle Creek State Nature Preserve toward the Mahoning River. Approximately $1.14 million from Clean Ohio Greenspace Grants provided funding for acquisition and initial restoration. Additional funding included: Portage Park District $325,000 in levy funds, $1,000 from Portage Park District Foundation, and $1,000 in in-kind volunteer labor from Hiram College. Western Reserve Land Conservancy holds a conservation easement on the property as an additional layer of protection into the future.
