Geauga Park District home

How wonderful...

Spring has sprung in your Geauga Park District!

Now's a brilliant time to start walking outdoors, taking inventory of what's blooming and singing in your neck of the woods.

What you see now won't be that way for too long. Things are always changing in the spring!

For some fresh air, enjoy your own exploration of your county parks while the gettin's good. And as a primer, allow Naturalist John Kolar to provide a virtual exploration of Swine Creek Reservation's early spring wildflower bounty by watching the video at right.
