Cuyahoga National Park is a very unique park system and is now administrated by the National Park Service although it comprises of many state parks and private inholdings. In the late 19th Century, it was a playground between the dense urban centers of Cleveland and Akron Ohio. In the 1930s the CCC built much of the infrastructure including the Kendall Lake Lodge, featured here in this five color serigraph. In 1974 it was designated a National Recreation Area and in 2000 a National Park. It includes many historic buildings, roads, bridges and tow paths along the Erie and Ohio Canals. WPA Artist Dorothy Waugh who created many National and State Park winter posters was involved early in the development here as was Albert Good–author of Park and Recreation Structures–a three volume tome of all buildings WPA–who designed this Lodge. The historic toboggan run, built by the CCC can be seen through the trees. Our 57th design. Due out July.
