Erie MetroParks land to be freshwater
SANDUSKY - Erie MetroParks has added 14 acres to a lakefront
site that will be preserved as a freshwater marsh.
The park system and the Trust for Public Land last week
announced the acquisition of the 14 acres next to Plum
Brook, a Sandusky Bay tributary.
In November, Erie MetroParks acquired 1,029 acres along
Lake Erie from the Nature Conservancy and the Trust for
Public Land. The park district plans to merge that land,
the 14 acres near Plum Brook, and a yet-to-be acquired
parcel with Osborn Park to make a new nature facility,
East Sandusky Bay Preserve MetroPark.
Because of restrictions on how the land can be used,
facilities in the still-unplanned park are expected to
be limited to hiking trails, picnic shelters, and parking
