West Creek Preservation Committee Concrete-Breaking Celebration

Celebrate with us as we kick off the return of West Creek at its confluence with the Cuyahoga River.

Witness the start of demolition as we reclaim the site from its current condition as a vacant warehouse and parking lot to make way for a beautiful 10-acre riverfront park.

When completed, West Creek will return to its original meandering flow into the Cuyahoga River with natural wetlands to reduce flooding, clean our drinking water, and restore wildlife habitat. The new park will connect the West Creek Greenway to the Ohio & Erie Canal Towpath Trail, provide new access to the creek and river for all, and lead to economic revitalization of this part of Independence.
