About this Location

The Harpersfield Covered Bridge Metropark is the most recognized park in the Geneva area. It is located on Harpersfield Road at the Grand River dam where many fishermen angle for trout (in spring and fall), bluegill, crappie, large- and smallmouth bass, etc. There are public picnic areas and pavilions on both sides of the river, plus recreational fields and public restrooms. Shallows below the dam provide children with hours of entertainment.

About Grand River

 The Grand Wild and Scenic River represents one of the finest examples of a natural stream to be found anywhere in Ohio. Due to its rugged topography, the Grand River has not until recently felt the influences of urbanization.

Today, the Grand River follows an odd course that was influenced by the glacier. The headwaters of the river can be found in Portage and Geauga counties. From there, the river flows north through Trumbull County and into Ashtabula County. In the northern part of the county, the river begins flowing westward into Lake County.
