Park Planning 

Public planning launches for ‘Tinkers Creek Greenway’ and ‘Kent Bog Expansion’

Portage Park District is now seeking public input to inform plans for creating two new parks on properties acquired in recent years, currently known as the ‘Tinkers Creek Greenway’ and the ‘Kent Bog Expansion’. Portage Parks purchased two properties in 2017, and we are looking for input from the community on the types of amenities that will be added—including suggestions on a park name!

Additional information about the properties – 

‘Tinkers Creek Greenway’   

A 130-acre property purchased from the Gressard Family on the north side of Ravenna Rd., with most of it in Streetsboro. We’re referring to it as part of the Tinkers Creek Greenway, a corridor that includes high quality natural areas, parks and nature preserves.
