The turtles will be having a close up view of some of the work that will be performed on the popular Towpath Trail.

From the Local Park Alerts page on the Summit Metro Parks website:

10/17- 10/21/16: The Towpath Trail will be closed from Botzum Trailhead south to Weathervane Lane. A contractor will be paving the trail. The work is weather-dependent and subject to change. There is no detour due to the short duration of the closure.

10/13/16: The Fairview Avenue south parking lot in Barberton will be closed beginning 10/13 until approximately 10/24. The lot will be used for stockpiling limestone material for a trail resurfacing project.

10/17/16:Beginning 10/17 and lasting for about one week, weather depending, crews will resurface the Towpath Trail in Barberton from Fairview Avenue south to Snyder Avenue. The trail will remain open during this work, but trail users may experience some short delays for heavy equipment transporting materials along this stretch of trail.
