Beginning Oct. 21, visitors traveling to Firestone Metro Park will only be able to access the Tuscarawas Meadows (2620 Harrington Rd., Akron) and Little Turtle Pond (2400 Harrington Rd., Akron) entrances from the north, via Swartz Road off of South Main Street.
Harrington Road will be closed at Warner Road, at the southeast corner of the 258-acre park, as a contractor for the Ohio Department of Natural Resources continues to renovate the dam on Harrington Road. The work began this summer and will continue into 2014.
Hiking trails, picnic areas and naturalist-led programs at Firestone Metro Park will not be affected.
