Indian Hills Park Wetland Renovation
This wetland renovation process at Indian Hills Park in Ashtabula Township centered around restoration of the area to its natural wetlands state. That goal was accomplished by installing a weir to control the water levels and adding plants typically native to Ohio wetlands. An elevated boardwalk was constructed to lead visitors to a viewing platform within the wetlands. The rustic construction allows for the preservation of picturesque wildlife. Walking paths along the river were installed for observation, as well as a primitive canoe launch, inviting patrons to bring their own boats. An unkempt wetland area evolved to a beautifully guided nature walk!
