Geauga Park District’s Big Creek Park in Chardon Township will be closed to the public for four days in January for the purpose of a controlled hunt.
Rangers will block public entrance to Big Creek Park, 9160 Robinson Road, Chardon from Saturday, January 4, 2014, through Tuesday, January 7, 2014, for safety reasons. This will also disable access to the park’s Donald W. Meyer Center.
Controlled hunting has been used since the 2007-08 season to maintain healthy, balanced populations of plants and animals on Park District properties. Time has proven it a viable management tool and a proactive approach to the Park District’s mission. Learn more about the program online.
All Geauga Park District buildings will also be closed Christmas Eve, Christmas Day and New Year’s Day; unscheduled closures are always posted on WKYC and WEWS in Cleveland.
