Wanted: Park Photos for Display

Typically, we look out a window to see nature. This December, Medina County Park District is inviting visitors to enjoy the beauty and diversity of the natural world by looking into the windows at Susan Hambley Nature Preserve in Brunswick.


This has been a year for the history books. Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, parks have been safe destinations for recreation, socially distanced meetings, and outdoor learning, while people seek respite from self-isolation. To encourage a feeling of connection with nature and with others, the park district is offering visitors the opportunity to share their park experiences through photographs to be displayed in the windows of the nature center.

Here’s how to participate. Print an 8-by-10 inch photo taken in a Medina County Park District park or preserve. Complete an information label available under What’s New at www.MedinaCountyParks.com and attach the label to the back of the photo. No watermarks or logos are permitted on the photos.

Submissions may be mailed to Medina County Park District Headquarters, 6364 Deerview Lane, Medina, OH 44256 or placed in a drop box at Wolf Creek Environmental Center, 6100 Ridge Road, Sharon Township. (Use Wadsworth when mapping directions online.) The Wolf Creek Environmental Center site (building remains closed due to COVID-19) is open 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesdays through Saturdays.

All ages are welcome to participate, but only one photo per person, please. This is not a contest, and no prizes will be awarded. Pictures will not be returned. The deadline to submit a photo is November 30.

While Brunswick Lake Park is open to visitors from 6 a.m. to dark, Susan Hambley Nature Center remains closed due to COVID-19. The gallery of submitted photos can be viewed by walking around the exterior of the building during park hours from December 5 through January 3. The nature center is located at 1473 Parschen Boulevard in Brunswick.
