MetroParks Pulling Second Shelter

Written by

Just under a month after a fire destroyed a pavilion in Sand Run Metro Park, Summit MetroParks says it's taking down another facility.

The open air Wadsworth Shelter was built in 1931 as a federal public works project.

Summit MetroParks says it has some structural problems that will force the parks system to take it down...a sinking fireplace foundation is causing the top of the stone fireplace to lean.

February 4th, a fire destroyed Shady Hollow Pavilion, also in Sand Run Metro Park.

Metro Parks spokesperson says that there are still plenty of facilities to meet demand, and though plans aren't formed yet.

Both Shady Hollow and the Wadsworth Shelter will be rebuilt.
