Cedar Fair Works with City of Sandusky to Create Landing Park

November 26, 2017, 8:01 PM

Cedar Fair, in partnership with the City of Sandusky, Ohio and Erie MetroParks, has announced a $24 million proposal to create Landing Park, a 27-acre nature preserve adjacent to Sports Force Parks at Cedar Point Sports Center and Cedar Point’s Castaway Bay Indoor Water Park and Resort.


This coastal area is mostly undeveloped and has not been accessible to the public for years, but plans recently announced indicate that the creation of a series of nature trails, extensive wetland preservation and restoration areas, a lighthouse observation tower and access for non-motorized watercraft such as kayaks, canoes and paddle boards could begin in 2018, in commemoration of the bicentennial of the founding of Sandusky, Ohio, home of Cedar Point. This project represents a growing dedication to the City of Sandusky and the entire Firelands Region of Northern Ohio.

Many if not most visitors to Cedar Point are unaware of the extensive undeveloped shoreline just a few miles away from the “Roller Coaster Capital of the World,” and this multi-million dollar, multi-year investment is a strong statement of Cedar Fair’s commitment to the community where it all started.

Very nice! It would be nice to have something natural on that Island (ok peninsula).
