Tam O'Shanter Park

Status Alert: 2023 Construction

Parking lots are aging and the layout doesn’t serve park patrons as well as it could. A Clean Ohio site improvements grant will fund 75% of the cost to upgrade the entrance and parking. Crews will be staking out areas for revised parking lot and driveways, removing and relocating vegetation, and performing some initial grading. The parking lot and driveway construction is anticipated to start this summer and the first phase to be completed by the end of the year. Expect changes to current parking availability as well as changes to some of the temporary trail routes.
