Geauga Park District home

In springtime, the only pretty ring time,
When birds do sing, hey ding a ding, ding;
Sweet lovers love the spring.

William Shakespeare knew all about the charm of the season in As You Like It – and so do all of our local wildlife, emerging from winter to go find a mate and make a go of another year!

Speaking of emerging, have you heard about this year's cicadas? It’s been 17 years since the Periodical Cicadas have made an appearance. In late May or early June 2016, Brood V will once again make its amazing, synchronous emergence, invading Geauga County and the eastern half of the state. Click here and add your name to the call list to get a call when the time is right for this incredible phenomenon!
