       The Ashtabula Township Park Commission is making great strides to revitalize Indian Trails Park "The Gulf"

In 2009 a project to build an education/information pavilion at the State Road entrance to Indian Trails Park near the Smolen Bridge was started. In 2010 the project was completed and dedicated. The project was completed with all volunteer labor and many financial donations including help from the Civic Development Corporation of Ashtabula County. (CDC)

       In 2014 CDC once again came forward to assist the Park Commission. Way-Finding signs were funded and installed both at 24th Street and State Road entrances to Indian Trails. These signs help tourist and visitors discover the assets of Ashtabula County and Indian Trails.

       In 2015 CDC has committed to helping improve Indian Trails by funding trail improvements behind Cederquist Ball Park. This trail work will lead back to the site of the 1875 train disaster and to a beautiful waterfall. CDC is also showing great support of the pedestrian bridge being built off State Road below the Smolen Gulf Bridge.

The Park Commission wishes to thank CDC for all their assistance and for seeing the importance of the continued revitalization of Indian Trails, a valued asset to Ashtabula County.

The Ashtabula Township Park Commission (Lake Shore Park & Indian Trails Park) was established for the people it serves, to provide a place for recreational activities within the area. Now, along with all the other projects the CDC of Ashtabula has lent support to us over the years we are ever so gracious to be chosen for the CDC 2020 Campaign for the restoration of Lake Shore Park's upper pond , including construction of a concrete walkway, fencing and the best part, an observation deck across the pond. This project has been a vision for a very long time and now with help from the CDC it will be a reality in the near future.

Riverview Bridge Wayfinding
       In 2016, along with a grant from the State of Ohio, the Ashtabula Township Park Commission was given financial support from the CDC in the form of a non-intrest loan for the construction of Riverview Pedestrian Covered Bridge over the Ashtabula River at State Road/Indian Trails . A project that took 5 years in the making and finally being chosen as a grant receipent.
