About High Meadows Picnic Area
High Meadows picnic area lies at the southern tip of the reservation in Elyria and is connected to Bur Oak by the Bridgeway Trail. With three reservable shelters, a playground and sand volleyball court with lots of open space, it’s a great place for young and old to spend a little time on the green grass and in the open air. High Meadows is located just south of Bur Oak along Ford Road.

About Black River Reservation
The Black River Reservation is one of the most popular parks in the Lorain County Metro Park system. The most notable feature is the Bridgeway Trail and the Steel Mill Trail. They total 5.5 miles of paved all-purpose trail that follow the Black River through its meanderings from Elyria to Lorain, spanning four city jurisdictions altogether. The reservation also features three separate picnic areas: High Meadows, Bur Oak and Day’s Dam, each contributing its own special character to the variety and natural beauty of this impressive park.
