With nearly 23,000 acres, Cleveland Metroparks needs a lot of different equipment to keep the parks, trails, greens and beaches well maintained.
Learn more about the vehicles and equipment that keep the Park District running smoothly at Touch-A-Truck on Sunday, August 17 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Strongsville Park Operations building in Mill Stream Run Reservation.
With over 30 pieces of equipment on-site, kids can enjoy climbing on and in the trucks, and learning why each piece of equipment is used. Departments with equipment on display will include: Park Operations, Specialty Crews, Golf, Natural Resources, Rangers, and Outdoor Experiences.
Kids can enjoy playing in a huge sandbox with tons of sand brought in by the Golf division. Children can build sandcastles or design their own pieces of equipment in the sand.
Bring your recyclable empty aluminum cans for a steamroller demonstration! Cleveland Metroparks ECO-Team will discuss recycling practices and tips on how to make changes in everyday life through recycling.
Bring a camera and make some family memories.
The first 1,500 kids will receive a free construction hat, too!
Strongsville Park Operations building is located at 9485 Eastland Road in Mill Stream Run Reservation, off Valley Parkway, west of Pearl Road/ in Strongsville. Haywagons and shuttle buses will be available to and from the parking areas.
