About Miller Road Park
The 17.7-acre Miller Road Park is on US-6 (Lake Road) northeast of the Miller Road intersection on the city of Avon Lake’s west side.

The park features a two-lane public boat launch accessible 24-hours a day. The launch is protected by two piers providing fishing access. The 550-foot west pier is made of limestone boulders, as is the 400-foot east pier, which is topped with a handicap accessible, paved concrete, lighted walkway. A 2002 grant from the Ohio Coastal Management Program funded, in part, the construction of a beach access ramp from the east pier down to the beach. The foot-friendly sand beach may run the length of the park’s property; however, the width and length vary with water levels.

Miller Road Park is adjacent to the west of a coal-fired power plant. The nearshore waters may be warmer than surrounding Lake Erie water. Temperature differences, shore structures, and nearshore profiles can cause currents here (see beach safety tips). Swimming is at one’s own risk.

The back beach is lined with a twenty-foot tall shale cliff. For safety, a chain link fence runs along the top of the cliff separating the bluff face from the park’s upper, partially shaded grass area. Amenities include picnic tables, grills, playgrounds, paved trails and two gazebos.

The park’s west parking lot has car-trailer parking. Additional car-only lots are along the east side of park property and US-6, which parallels the Back Roads and Beaches Bike Trail.
