Fred Fuller Park to Tannery Park
Design Start Date October 2009
Start Date March 2012
This segment of The Portage to be constructed will begin at a trailhead on
the east side of Middlebury Road. The trail will continue east to an existing
aggregate trail within Fred Fuller Park.
The project includes the construction of a multi-use trail facility
consisting of a 10’ wide asphalt trail on grade, a 176’ bridge crossing the
Cuyahoga River and 750’ of boardwalk.
In 2009, the Cuyahoga River segment of the Portage was opened ending at the
south end of Fred Fuller Park. This next phase will continue the trail from
Fred Fuller, along the river, to the John Brown Tannery Park.
