Cascade Valley Metro Park

In 1833, hydraulic engineer and entrepreneur Eliakim Crosby built the Cascade Race, a channel that powered the mills and businesses along the Ohio & Erie Canal. The Cascade Race helped transform Akron into a boomtown. Years later, Crosby built the failed Chuckery Race. Traces of it can still be seen today.

Today, fish here are prey for belted kingfishers and great blue herons. Beautiful white trillium grows in the floodplain woods each spring beside wild ginger and several types of violets.
