Ride By Permit Stay Safe in the Snow

As part of its mission to provide outdoor recreational experiences to residents of every age, every ability and at all times of the year, Geauga Park District has issued permits to snowmobile at Observatory Park each winter since 2016.

Snowmobiling is allowed by permit only, when conditions are right, from sunrise to sunset. Please note that once you apply using the online application below, your permit will not be valid until a signed copy is received via email, and that affiliation with a Geauga County snowmobiling club is required for permit approval.
