The New Conneaut Lake Park has, unfortunately, had to dismantle the Bessemer Walkway while continuing its efforts to rebuild and update portions of the park. The Bessemer Walkway was constructed of hundreds of bricks that were purchased as donations to the original park for the project and the new park would like to give the opportunity for people who purchased bricks to get them back. Contact can be made through e-mail by writing to NewConneautLakePark@gmail.com; tell them which bricks you want and schedule a pickup date and time.
