Location of Geauga Lake
The words “Geauga Lake” evoke many emotions for the people of greater northeast Ohio. The once famed amusement park has been a household staple for over a century. The 652-acre site straddling Portage and Geauga counties has had its ups and downs only to be completely shut down. But as the site has sat vacant, no development plans have come to fruition. The two communities of Bainbridge Township and the City of Aurora have been attempting to come together with one common goal: to redevelop the land of the old park and create a new, beautiful space to bring the communities together and entice outsiders to visit.
