Castalia Quarry by Kathy M. from Tripadvisor.com
Up until 1965 the area this park encompasses was a fully operational quarry. Since then, the land has slowly been reclaimed by the natural environment and today is home to over 240 species of native plants. Perhaps the park’s best feature is its overlook deck, which sits atop the quarry’s rim and gives expansive views of the quarry and Lake Erie in the distance.
