RICHFIELD — Bright spring blooms have emerged at Furnace Run Metro Park, according to Metro Parks, Serving Summit County officials. Flowers at the H.S. Wagner Daffodil Trail were expected to be at their peak this week.

Some area residents got out to see the earlier varieties of daffodils during visits to the park April 15. Carol and Jim Elliott, of Green, are pictured above as they pause along the 0.6-mile trail.

Park district officials said there are thousands of daffodil bulbs planted at the site, with dozens of varieties included.

The trail was named after the first director-secretary of Metro Parks, Harold Wagner, who planted the first bulbs there in the 1930s.
