About Harpersfield Covered Bridge Metropark
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 the 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.
The upper portion of the Grand River in Ashtabula County is designated scenic. The river is bordered in many areas by extensive swamp forests of elm, ash, maple, pine, pin oak and swamp white oak.
The slow flow of this section of the river along with the adjoining wetlands provides excellent habitat for a number of wildlife species, especially river otters, which have made a strong comeback after their reintroduction by the Division of Wildlife in 1986 and 1988.
