You may have noticed a few changes at Cottage Grove park recently!

Funding for this project was obtained through Ohio EPA Surface Water Improvement Grant, with participation by the Summit County Engineer's Office, Summit Soil and Water Conservation District and our own Coventry Road Department. By daylighting an old pipe that ran through an unused portion of the park, we have been able to help alleviate flooding in the surrounding neighborhood. The stream will be finished this spring and will include a walking path alongside the natural stream - creating a scenic area for all to enjoy!
