About Nero Nature Preserve
In December 1999, the Munson Trustees purchased 165 acres of park land from the Domenic Nero family at the northeast corner of Route 44 and Bean Road nearly contiguous with the existing park. The 165 acres is a mixture of woods, wetlands, hills and flat space. Park board members, trustees, and residents from the community met to discuss long range goals for the new park on March 18, 2000. The land is protected by a conservation easement held by Western Reserve Land Conservancy. In 2002 a gravel roadway, parking lot and utility connections were put in. Area scout troops constructed park benches and wooden trail sections, and Western Reserve Land Conservancy lent its expertise and assistance in cutting in walking trails, which are close to completion. Two small picnic shelters were erected in 2006. Only foot traffic is allowed anywhere in the park – absolutely no ATV’s or other motorized vehicles.

Visitors can explore almost 2 miles of gorgeous nature trails that extend through old farm field and beech-maple forest, across streamed ravines that overlook a floodplain habitat extending along a tributary of the Chagrin River and past high-quality wetlands. In the western portion of the preserve, hikers are treated to views of an expansive wetland area enhanced by beaver activity that is teeming with aquatic life. Two small picnic shelters and numerous benches along the trails invite visitors to slow down and enjoy the beauty of Geauga County.
