The Cleveland Metroparks will be continuing their deer management program this winter. A portion of South Chagrin Reservation is within the municipal boundaries of the Village of Moreland Hills, and management is planned for this area.
From Noon to 6:00am the following morning, portions or all of South Chagrin Reservation will be closed to the public on several days from January 21 through March 19, 2020. The reservation will be posted/signed and closed completely during the management program.

Specific closures will be posted on Cleveland Metroparks Alerts and Closures page by 6:00pm on the evening prior to an area's closure. When posted, the announcement will give details about reservations and sections of the parkway that will be closed between noon and 6:00am the following morning.
