Cleveland's Flats has long been an industrial zone and an entertainment district. Residences have risen there now, too, and office buildings. And as of next week, a 9-acre park and trail on the once forlorn Scranton Peninsula. Monday at 9:00 on The Sound of Ideas we'll talk about how the Scranton Flats project came to be, how it fits into the region's park infrastructure and its role in furthering the Towpath Trail along the course of the Ohio and Erie Canal. Join host Mike McIntyre.
