On Monday, April 8, 2024, every park within Erie MetroParks will experience a TOTAL SOLAR ECLIPSE!
There is a 124-mile path of totality that will cross through Ohio, and everyone in that path will experience the total solar eclipse. Areas in Ohio that are outside the path of totality will experience a partial eclipse. A total solar eclipse is a rare and special event. Only 21 total solar eclipses have crossed the lower 48 states in the entire existence of our country. The last total solar eclipse visible in Ohio was in the early 1800s. The next total solar eclipse in Ohio will be in the year 2099.
We want to share this magical event with the community and we welcome travelers near and far to come view the eclipse from one of the 13 public Erie MetroParks.
We will also be giving away solar eclipse viewing glasses to the public starting March 2024 (while supplies last). You can request a pair from the visitor’s information desk at the Frost Center at Osborn MetroPark. Limit 1 per person. If you have any other questions please email us at email@example.com or call 419-625-7783. We couldn’t be more excited!!
