WATCH: New Twinsburg Ledges Trail Officially Opened at Liberty Park
The 1.1 mile trail and parking lot was unveiled by the city and Metro Parks, Serving Summit County
Officials from Metro Parks, Serving Summit County and Twinsbur were on-hand Tuesday morning to dedicate the new Twinsburg Ledges Area in Liberty Park.
A 70-car parking lot and nearly half-mile entrance drive were constructed by Metro Parks this year to make possible the opening of the much-anticipated 1.1 mile Ledges Trail, which leads visitors past a fern and moss-covered system of sandstone ledges, into Glacier Cave and to the edge of a wetland. The trail was built in 2009 with a grant from the Ohio Department of Natural Resources.
At more than 1,800 acres, Liberty Park exists because of a unique partnership between Twinsburg and Metro Parks. The city manages the recreation area with play fields and a playground. The park district manages the remaining acreage, including the new Twinsburg Ledges Area and the Pond Brook Conservation Area on SR 82.
Look for a video tour of the new trail Wednesday morning on Twinsburg Patch.
