Deep Lock Quarry Metro Park


Historic 73-acre Deep Lock Quarry contains the deepest lock on the historic Ohio & Erie Canal, the remains of old quarries, and more Ohio buckeye trees than any other Metro Park in Summit County, Ohio. Stone was last cut here in the 1930s. Today, visitors enjoy climbing the ancient-looking quarry steps, which rise in the woods along the 1.2-mile Quarry Trail. The park is managed by Metro Parks, Serving Summit County and was officially recognized as an Important Bird Area in 2011.
