Total Solar Eclipse

April 8th will be a landmark day in Northeast Ohio as we experience a total eclipse of the sun! Mark the occasion with Solar Eclipse FGP branded t-shirts, hoodies and hats. All proceeds will directly impact our mission.

The Geauga Park District is hosting a special event for onlookers at the Geauga County Fairgrounds on April 8th and the Foundation for Geauga Parks is a proud sponsor. Visitors will be able to enjoy educational and hands-on activities, food vendors and fun before the eclipse viewing begins.
