Hinckley Lake Spillway — The Cleveland Metro Parks is in the active planning stages of renovating the Hinckley Lake Spillway and dredging portions of the reservoir to restore the lake for recreation. ┬áThe plan may involve raising the level of the dam and reforming sections of the shoreline and rebuilding the low head dam that impounds the water for the swimming area.


We encourage the Metroparks to focus on their Sustainability Policy in place since March of 2017 and perform the work as sustainable as possible and not disrupt the flow of water to the East Branch of the Rocky River. We would like to work with the Metroparks to minimize the disruption to the residents of Hinckley and the impact this work may have on our roads.
