Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR) Director James Zehringer announced Thursday, June 5, that capital improvements will be made on Kelleys Island, North Bass Island, South Bass Island and Middle Bass Island state parks. Catawba Island and East Harbor state parks will also be receiving improvements. The 2015-2016 capital budget also allocated funding for renovating the Lonz Winery property on Middle Bass Island to allow for public-private partnership.
“We always want to provide Ohioans more opportunities to get out and enjoy Lake Erie and our island state parks,” said Zehringer. “These projects will improve the experience of our visitors and help transform the Lonz Winery property into a destination that will benefit the residents and local businesses.”
