In The Region:
In time for Memorial Day weekend, the Cuyahoga Valley National Park has reopened much of the Towpath Trail and other parts of the park -- a week after they were flooded. WKSU’s Kabir Bhatia has this update.

Heavy rains closed the park and cancelled scenic railroad trips and the farmer’s market. Park spokeswoman Mary Pat Doorley says the farmers’ market will return Saturday. And 18 miles of the Towpath Trail is open again, from Lock 39 in Independence to Ira Road in Cuyahoga Falls. 

“We have two miles remaining south of Ira Road to Botzum Trailhead that are closed.”

The scenic railroad is operating on a modified schedule between Peninsula and Independence, with the Thomas train among those running this weekend.

“Our bike aboard program is running this Saturday and Sunday, where you can bike on the towpath one-way and take the train back to your vehicle.”

Doorley adds that the closures due to rain should not impact this year’s attendance as much as the government shutdown in September affected 2013’s numbers.
