Hogback Ridge Park temporarily closed

Hogback Ridge Park, 2656 Hogback Road, Delaware, is temporarily closed to the public effective today for a culvert repair. The broken culvert poses a safety hazard and means that the driveway is impassable.

Hogback Ridge Park is also district headquarters for Preservation Parks of Delaware County, and staff members will be working out of a park building near the entrance and at other locations around the district.

The staff is working with contractors to expedite the repairs, but do not yet have a timeline for repairs or a scheduled reopening. Information will be updated at www.preservationparks.com/parks and on social media.

Those with questions may call 740-524-8600, ext. 2 or 5.
