Boardman Park hosts Maple Syrup Festival

BOARDMAN

Sap production in maple trees varies from year to year depending on the temperatures, but that never stops Boardman Park from hosting its annual Maple Syrup Festival.

The event includes the Boardman Rotary’s pancake breakfast and a maple-syrup demonstration.

Each year, park workers tap the maple trees in the park and collect sap. The excess water is then boiled away to create pure maple syrup.

The park’s trees produce a few gallons of syrup each year, said Pete Cordon, a park employee.

“It’s more for demonstration than production,” Cordon noted.

Erik Linebaugh is no stranger to the event. As a child, he regularly attended with his mother. Now Linebaugh and his wife, Linda, bring their son.

“I enjoy it every year,” Linebaugh said at today’s event. “It’s nice. It brings community together.”
