Cuyahoga Falls Dam will be Removed!

Gorge Metro Park Damn will be removed soon. Gorge Metro Park is located in an improbable section of the Cuyahoga River. The river was formed about 12,000 years ago when the Wisconsin glaciers retreated to their northern origins. Only 100 miles long, the river is young, shallow and slow-moving — except in the gorge. The river falls a total of 700 feet in elevation from its headwaters in Geauga County to Lake Erie at its mouth. Over 200 feet of that elevation drop happens within a short two-mile section of the gorge.

The Gorge Public meeting will be held October 31st, 2022, from 6pm to 8pm at the Cuyahoga Falls Natatorium. The meeting is open to the public. Cuyahoga Falls Natatorium is located at 2345 4th Street, Cuyahoga Falls.

The Gorge Metro Park offers gorgeous scenery, fishing, walking trails, the famous waterfalls as well as picnic tables and grills. Im interested in learning what will replace the Dam. Will there still be a waterfall? I enjoy walking the trail with my son to see the waterfall. I’m excited to see whats next.

The Metro Park claims removing the dam will improve river ecology, create recreational opportunities and drive economic benefits.
