Current Capital Projects

The Conservancy partners with the National Park Service to identify projects that need private funding to realize park enhancement projects.

BOSTON MILL VISITOR CENTER: Coming in 2019. Each year, Cuyahoga Valley National Park welcomes over two million visitors, with 20 percent coming from out-of-state. However, the park lacks an essential piece to welcome all these people: a full-service, central visitor center. Soon, that’ll change for good.  Learn more about this project>

EAST RIM TRAIL SYSTEM: The first section of the East Rim trail system officially opened in spring 2016—the first mountain biking trail in our national park. Today, seven more miles are in the works! Construction on Phase 2 is already underway, forming the brand-new Lamb Loop and Edson Run trails. When complete, mountain bikers and hikers will have nearly 10 miles to explore on the East Rim trail system. See what’s happening now
