FREE SNOWSHOE BORROWING
Equipment available at The West Woods Nature Center for your use
Back this year: Geauga Park District’s popular snowshoe borrowing program at The West Woods…still FREE for Geauga County residents!
Also, new showshoes are available for kids ages 3 to 6 and under 50 pounds.
A signed waiver form and a driver’s license must be left as a security deposit in order to check out equipment. Out-of-county residents will also pay a $5 rental fee by credit card.
Borrowing can take place any time 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. and last up to two hours, with all snowshoes returned by 4 p.m. One must be at least 18 years old to check out a pair; anyone younger must be accompanied by an adult.
The deeper the snow, the better, with at least a few inches a must. But whatever the weather, snowshoes are now waiting in The West Woods Nature Center’s lobby for your use when the time is right. Though a call to 440-279-0880 may be made to check availability, no reservations are taken. Rather, snowshoes are available on a first-come, first-served basis.
Please note that snowshoes may not leave The West Woods except for registered programs. The West Woods Nature Center is located at 9465 Kinsman Road (Route 87) in Russell Township. With additional questions, please call ahead at 440-286-9516.
