II. SITE DATA – PARK CHARACTERIZATION
Park Location and Boundaries
Indian Trails Park is located in north central Ashtabula County bounded by the City of Ashtabula to the west, Ashtabula Township to the east and Plymouth Township to the south. It is almost equal distance to the municipalities of Conneaut to the east and Geneva to the west providing a central location to the major population centers that lie north of Interstate 90, a major east/west freeway. The southern portion of the Park is visible from the State Route 11 “twin bridge” overpass. Route11 is a major north/south corridor that begins at Ashtabula’s lakeshore, and continues through Youngstown, to East Liverpool, on the West Virginia border. It also provides easy access for Pittsburgh, PA – area residents.
The northern boundary of the Park begins approximately ½ mile south of the Ashtabula River Federal Navigation Channel terminus, approximately 2 ½ miles south of Lake Erie.
The Park’s proximity to major thruways from the metropolitan centers of Cleveland, OH (55 miles west), Youngstown, OH (50 miles south) and Erie, PA (35 miles east) would support ease of visitation from outside Ashtabula County. (See Park Location Map; following page)
