Map of Proximity of Locations to Parks and Protected Spaces

This map color-codes zones to indicate how close areas are to the region’s parks and protected spaces. Most of the region’s population is no more than two miles from a park or protected green space.

There are, however, areas concentrated along the edge of the region that are further than two miles from a park or protected space. These areas include western Lorain and Medina counties, southern Wayne and Stark Counties, and parts of Ashtabula, Trumbull, and Mahoning counties.
