OHIO PARKS-UPGRADES
Ohio state parks to see $88.5M over 2 years to modernize camp sites, trails, infrastructure

Reported by: Associated Press
Reported: Wednesday, April 23, 2014 12:10 AM EDT
COLUMBUS, Ohio


State officials are preparing to invest $88.5 million to upgrade and modernize trails, campgrounds and recreational facilities in Ohio's state parks over the next two years.

The outlay headed to the Ohio Department of Natural Resources through the state capital budget is more than four times larger than average. Details are to be announced at news conferences Wednesday in Grand Lake St. Mary's and Indian Lake.

Natural resources department director James Zehringer told The Associated Press in an interview that the money will be shared among Ohio's 74 state parks. Ohio's is one of only seven park systems nationally that charges no entry fees.

Through a website, parks visitors will help decide which camp sites, cabins, lodges, restrooms, shower houses, trails, roads and wastewater treatment facilities see improvements.
