Leetonia park re-opens

Coke ovens

LEETONIA, Ohio (WYTV) – The Cherry Valley Beehive Coke Ovens Park is once again open to the public.

Leetonia Village council Wednesday night voted to re-open the park effective today.

It has been closed since the Ohio Department of Natural Resources began a drainage project there in September 2013.

Council briefly opened the park last summer, but closed it again due to safety concerns.

The coke ovens site now includes a split rail fence and signs warning visitors against misuse of the park.

It is open during daytime hours.

Comments are closed.
