PARMA HEIGHTS, Ohio - On Monday, Oct. 22 at 1 p.m., Colombo Park in Parma Heights will officially open to the public with a grand opening ceremony.
The park was donated by Margaret Colombo in memory of her late husband, developer Charles Colombo.
The park is located at 6338 Pearl Rd., just west of the intersection of Pearl and Stumph roads.
Colombo Park will be modeled after a Tuscan garden. There will be a fountain that greets visitors as they enter the park. The 3/4 acre park will also contain walking trails, benches, lamp posts and woodcarvings.
In 2010, the city of Parma Heights was awarded a Community Development Block Grant from the Cuyahoga County Department of Development to purchase the property with the stipulation that Margaret Colombo would donate a park back to the city.
