Restoring the Cuyahoga
To play our part in improving the health of the watershed, CVNP is embarking on a number of large-scale restoration projects.
The projects will result in long-term benefits to the Cuyahoga River, but occasional short-term closures to public use of the Towpath Trail and other areas in the park. The National Park Service is working to finalize dates for the projects. However, at this time, we are unable to predict when the short term closures will occur.
We will notify the public about any closures of the Ohio & Erie Canal Towpath Trail. Stay up to date by checking our alerts page.
Also be sure to keep an eye out for Ollie the Otter! Anytime you see him, it is a reminder that our River Renewal is Underway!
