Harry Eastwood's legacy continues in the Eastwood Preserve. The Eastwood Preserve is a 28 acre parcel of land located in the heart of Richfield. It was the property of the Harry Eastwood Family. Upon Harry's death the family wanted to see the land preserved forever.
Acquiring the Land
The Eastwood Preserve was acquired through a Clean-Ohio Grant in 2004. The Summit-Medina Land Conservatory is the administrator of the property. Development of the Preserve started with the house property and the gardens.
Features, Gardens and Programs
The Preserve offers us a diverse variety of features. It is the headwater of the Yellow Creek. In 2009 we started the first Community Garden, now we expanded to three Garden areas with approximately 12 foot by 12 foot plots for rent at a cost of $45 per season.
We have added a Children's Garden, teaching our youth how to sow and grow, and back with popular demand we are holding Master Gardener classes again.
