Expanding West Creek Reservation
Repurposing the Former Parmadale Campus
Built by the People, for the People
The time is now. The former Parmadale campus in Parma is ready to be transformed into an 80-acre park and preserve unique in Northeast Ohio!
With only 5.4% public green space in a dense urban/suburban region, the new park (to be named) will CREATE more vibrant communities, CONNECT people to health and nature, and RESTORE habitat for cleaner air, land and water.
Join us today for a greater, greener CLE!
Goal: $14 million
Your gift strengthens the economic and environmental health of our community. Parks have a major impact: reducing flooding, increasing public green space and improving water quality. Community amenities that people of all ages and abilities can enjoy.
