The construction of a multi-level treehouse at Coe Lake is expected to get under way this fall.


Work should begin soon, weather permitting, with an expected completion date in the spring.


The treehouse will be located near Mucklo Playground and the Municipal Pool. It will include multiple platforms with play accessories such as bridges and climbing devices. An elevator will enable access by those with disabilities.

The house will span two trees and be anchored to a light pole. The main deck will measure 30x15 feet with a secondary deck of 8x10 feet. Those will be about 10 feet from the ground. A third 8x10-foot deck will be 12 feet off the ground.  The treehouse will be partially covered by a thatched roof. The design will match that of the nearby Kiwanis Pavilion.


The treehouse will have views of Coe Lake and platforms could be used for receptions and small parties.


Contractor is Zerbe Construction, which also did the Coe Lake amphitheater and pavilion and the splash pad at McKelvey Park.


The project is partially funded by grants from Cuyahoga County Council, a $50,000 Community Development Supplemental Grant and a $30,000 donation from Berea Kiwanis for naming rights.


Other City projects getting under way include repaving of Emerson Avenue. The project includes resurfacing the road and replacing aprons as needed. The bid was awarded to Specialized Construction and the work should take 8-10 weeks. Berea was awarded two grants to partially cover the costs – a $150,000 Community Development Block Grant and a $50,000 Community Development Supplemental Grant.
