Brecksville, Ohio - Cuyahoga Valley National Park (CVNP) strives to remove barriers and build enjoyable experiences for everyone. This summer, the park will present its very popular Campfire Tales complete with American Sign Language interpreters. Bring a blanket and a picnic dinner. We'll play games on the Ledges lawn, and then light the campfire and share some good old-fashioned campfire tales. Afterwards, enjoy the tranquility of an evening in your national park. Alcohol is prohibited. Meet at the Ledges Shelter, 6 p.m. for family activities, and 7 p.m. for the campfire.
