About the Magazine
Green Islands is produced quarterly and mailed free of charge to Summit County residents.* If you would like to be added to the mailing list, click here.
*We only send publications to in-county residents because the park district is funded by Summit County tax dollars. However, Friends of Metro Parks will send our publications to its members who live outside of Summit County.
