Sealing Work At Pearson

Beginning the week of June 21, asphalt sealing will begin at Pearson. The work will cause periodic closings of all paved surfaces in the park, including the main road and parking lots. The work is expected to last approximately two weeks, depending on weather.

Wildwood Red Trail Update

Work to improve the Red Trail at Wildwood is ongoing.

Wildwood Waterline

Thank you for your understanding during the construction of a new waterline at Wildwood. Work is now wrapping up and water service has been restored. Repairs to the landscape will be completed once the ground has settled.

Providence Maintenance Building

Reuben Construction is continuing work on the Providence Metropark maintenance building. The project will continue through April and will include roof repair, electrical wiring, a new concrete floor in the east garage, wall repair in the west shop, window replacement on the first floor and third floor, a new retaining wall near the structure and a new lean-to shed. The pole barn that holds vehicles will receive a new concrete floor. The work should not impact park visitors.

Side Cut Shelter

Work is also under way at the Side Cut Wayne Street shelter near the parking lot will continue. The roof and support posts that have been removed will be replaced with galvanized metal posts and roof. Repairs will also be made to mortar on the steps and shelter. A new, accessible ramp will be constructed to allow access from the bottom of the trail up to the shelter. The work will impact use of the trail and shelter. Signs have been posted identifying the work.

Repaving Projects

– 1.88 miles of the Oak Openings Parkway from SR 295 to Girdham Road was recently repaved.

– A new 42-car parking lot and adjacent sidewalk will be constructed this summer at Bend View Metropark on US24. The park, which is currently accessible only by walking about two miles on the Towpath Trail from neighboring Farnsworth Metropark, will have its own entrance.

– A 12-car parking lot at a Metroparks field office on Fallen Timbers Lane in Maumee is also scheduled to be paved. The project also includes drainage improvements.

– A new, 1,000 feet of bike path connecting the eastern end of Jerome Road to Russell Road in Maumee wil be completed this summer. Work will include a new cul-de-sac on Jerome, drainage improvements and landscaping. The trail will eventually connect the Metroparks bike/pedestrian bridge over US24 with the Wabash Cannonball Trail.
