Liberty Park

Ohio

This IBA is a partnership between the City of Twinsburg and Metro Parks, serving Summit County. The city manages the park's 100-acre recreation area while Metro Parks manages the remaining acreage, including two trails and the Pond Brook Conservation Area.
Large trees grow on rock ledges and in wetlands within the conservation area, which includes fens and bogs. Metro Parks has designated this a Low Impact Area, meaning mowing, trails and other park improvements will be kept to a minimum. Liberty Park is home to many rare and endangered species, including Indiana bats, Marsh Wrens, Ospreys, and Bald Eagles.
