Log Description

Thanks for helping us monitor this pond and stream restoration project. Going back to 1915, there was a pond at this location where visitors could float in small boats, and they could ice skate in winter. Over time, the pond filled in with sediment, and it has become more of a wetland. Reestablishing the pond will bring back some of the previous recreational opportunities to the park. Stream restoration activities will benefit Wolf Creek and Mill Creek downstream. Photos from this site will help us monitor the functioning of this re-established pond and stream. You can also help monitor other sites: Astorhurst wetland, Bonnie Park Wetland Restoration, Bonnie Park Dam Removal, Brookside stormwater bioretention, Chagrin River at Jackson Field, and Euclid Creek headwater restoration at Acacia Reservation. This site is not yet ADA accessible.
