Ashtabula County Metroparks

For Fun, For Health, For Life



By on February 5, 2018

A new program this year in partnership with the Ashtabula County District Library! Dates and times of painting labs will be posted by ACDL.


  1. Paint

Talented rock painters from AshtabulaRocks and the Ashtabula County District Library (ACDL) will paint rocks during the winter and spring of 2018. Want to join a rock painting lab at the library or outdoor Paint-in-the-Park event? Check our Facebook page for dates, times and locations! ACDL will begin labs in March/April. Drop in Art Lab: Dates and times posted on ACDL calendar.

  1. PLACE

Participants in Photographers in the Park will place rocks when they hike and photograph the Metroparks. They will shoot a picture at every location where a rock is left, then post the photo and clues to the Ashtabula MetroParks Facebook page.

  1. SEEK

Using the photo as guide, hit the trails of the MetroParks and look for the rocks. You’ll need some familiarity with the parks as specifics won’t be disclosed. Yes, we want you to get up and get moving, discover MetroParks, and have some FUN! Authentic #MetroParksRocks! will have a unique, backside ID sticker.

    Post a photo of the rock you found on Social Media, and hashtag the post #MetroParksRocks! and #ACDLrocks! Show your posting to Circulation staff at an ACDL library (Ashtabula or Geneva branch) or a MetroParks office, to be entered in a drawing for great prizes, awarded in the fall of 2018.
