Photo a day #34: Chilo Lock 34 Park


I’ve been to Chilo Lock 34 Park before. And yes, that really is the name of a park. Or, it was the name of an actual U.S. Army Corps of Engineer’s lock and dam along the Ohio River in Clermont County that got turned into a park with a small museum and nature preserve. I guess the name of the park serves some economy of meaning.

Anything that appears to be original from the wooden lock system station, once a small thriving little community of its own, is mostly gone or in decay.

The only part of the original lock not falling apart is the main building of the lock system that now houses the museum, and a house. With an adjacent wetland the park is a mix between peaceful and creepy, especially on a winter afternoon.

Sort of creepy. Right?

And peaceful.
