‘Burrow Oak State Park’: Three Ohio state parks renowned for Super Bowl-related Bengals

COLUMBUS, Ohio (WCMH) – Ohio Governor Mike DeWine has announced that three Ohio state parks will be temporarily renamed after Cincinnati Bengals players to honor the upcoming appearance of the team in the Super Bowl against the Los Angeles Rams.

DeWine and Ohio Department of Natural Resources Director Mary Mertz renamed Burr Oak State Park in Glouster to “Burrow Oak State Park” after Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow.

Burrow was instrumental in Cincinnati’s run to an AFC championship and will seek to become the first quarterback in history to win a Heisman Trophy, a national college title and the Super Bowl.

“We’re incredibly proud of the Bengals and everything they’ve accomplished this season,” Gov. DeWine said. “The whole state will be supporting Cincinnati on Sunday, and it’s a fun way to show your support for orange and black.”

The other two state parks that morph orange and black are Paint Creek State Park in Bainbridge, now called “Evan McPherson Extra Point Creek State Park” after the Bengals’ rookie kicker, and Hueston Woods State Park in College Corner, now nicknamed “Ickey Woods State Park” after the legendary running back from Cincinnati.

The locations of the new Bengals Park name signs will be announced by the ODNR once they are in place.

The Bengals and Rams face off in Super Bowl LVI on Sunday from Los Angeles exclusively on NBC4.
