Sep 26, 2019, 17:05 PM by Becky Vanderpool
Based on the authority contained in Section 1545.09 20c of the Rules and Regulations of the MetroParks, in an effort to enhance public safety, protect park resources, maintain good order, and promote enjoyment of park facilities, the mostly-natural-surfaced path known as the Night Heron Trail at Gilmore MetroPark, is closed to park visitors and will not be maintained in order to avoid potential adverse impacts to adjoining privately-held lands. The closure is effective immediately and remains in effect until further notice. The other trails on the property remain open as before. See map below of trail to be closed under this order.
