    for the city Garfield Heights, Ohio, lacking is a photo of construction at Garfield Park, only 1/2 miles from where my spouse’s family lived through the ’80s. From “https://www.clevelandmetroparks.com/parks/visit/parks/garfield-park-reservation”, you may view and, I’d hope, download one photo of the old boathouse, et al. at the lower lake. Also you may find more photos here: http://www.ghhist.org/apps/photos/photo?photoid=15474103
