About:

Acacia Reservation, now a 155-acre green space oasis, was a golf course deeded over to the Metroparks in 2012. Local and regional ecological experts are working together to create the most effective restoration plan for Acacia.

That plan includes the restoration of Euclid Creek's main stem which travels through the Acacia Reservation in Lyndhurst.

The acquisition of Acacia more than doubled the amount of public park land in the watershed.

The Euclid Creek Watershed drains 23 square miles through 12 communities, most of them in eastern Cuyahoga County. The restoration will improve water quality and reduce storm-water runoff.

The plan also includes new plantings, the establishment of swales that help contain water, and the destruction of the drainage-tile network that facilitated runoff from the golf course.

The restoration is being underwritten by more than $2 million in grants from the Ohio EPA, with the rest coming the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and the Conservation Fund.

Come and learn how the restoration effort it progressing.

Come join us!

New members and guests are always welcome!
