Ohio's 74 state parks will soon receive $88.5 million in improvements. Many were built in the sixties and are outdated.
The Ohio Department of Natural Resources plans call for upgrades to hook-ups, new restrooms, new shower houses and other infrastructure improvements.
"It's fundamentally important that we take care of our state asset. What ODNR can do and has done to enhance our quality of life is unbelievable," said State Senator Randy Gardner of Bowling Green.
Plans were announced Thursday in Ottawa County, which has seven state parks, the most in Ohio. An on-line survey is currently underway on ODNR's web site asking folks what they would like to see done to the parks. There have been 3,500 responses.
"And so we want your input on where the important parks that you support are and what you think renovations should be for your park," said ODNR Director James Zehringer.
Also discussed were plans for the former Lonz Winery site on Middle Bass Island, closed fourteen years ago after a deadly terrace collapse. Improvements are ongoing including a new pavilion for ferry service.
"But then we're going to have open houses for public input and private investors on how we can make the Lonz Winery a viable tourist attraction like it used to be," said Zehringer.
The open houses will be held sometime this summer.
