Geauga Park District home

The warm weather is here at last! There are so many ways to enjoy it in your Geauga parks, from free kayak borrowing at Headwaters Park to events including free Movie Nights and outdoor amphitheater concerts. Here are a few more ideas:

• Take a hike! Try The West Woods' new Falls Trail to Affelder Falls, accessible via the Route 306 entrance to Affelder House. Or click Find a Park above for hiking on our more than 77 trails.

• Break out those bicycles and ride The Maple Highlands Trail. Did you know plans are underway to pave the southern section through the Village of Middlefield?

• Explore Nature with someone who knows! Naturalists are always hosting programs to guide your family's next Nature adventure! Click Find a Program/Event above to see what's coming up next.

There is truly something for everyone.
We'll look forward to seeing you this summer!
