From the popular Harpersfield Covered Bridge MetroPark to the now almost completed Western Reserve Greenway, the 21st Century promises exciting times for Recreation, Conservation, and Education in Ashtabula County. Please support us in creating a legacy of access to the county's beautiful and important natural areas for our children and grandchildren.

The Ashtabula County Metropolitan Parks District (The Ashtabula County Metroparks) was established pursuant to the Ohio Revised Code by Judge J. Philip Perry in December 1959. The aims of the original board were to create historical and recreational parks as well as conservation areas. These aims have not changed throughout the years. The board consists of five members, appointed by the court, to serve 3-year terms without compensation.

The current Board consists of Terry Berkey, Bob Best, George Cspegi, Charlie Kohli and Mike Sords.

What The Ashtabula County Metroparks Do For You:

  • The park board works in partnership with Asthabula County, city, village, township and other groups to promote countywide outdoor recreation, conservation and education.

  • We work to insure a well maintained and patrolled environment for park users.

  • We leverage federal, state, and other dollars to improve family recreational activities throughout the county.

  • Remember, that much of this is accomplished with a dedicated board of volunteers who have been and will continue to be critical to all of Ashtabula County Metropark activities. These volunteers donate their time to mow the Western Reserve Greenway Trail, provide litter control, tree limb removal, educational events, fundraising and other services. Volunteers include Ashtabula County Volunteer Bike Patrol, Friends of the Metroparks, Ashtabula County Park Foundation, Ashtabula County Metropark Board Members, Grand River Trail Riders, and countless other enthusiastic volunteers.
