Directions: Wellington Upground Reservoir is located on Jones Road, just east of the Wellington Reservation of Lorain Metro Parks. From Cleveland west suburbs, take I-480 west. It merges into Rte. 10, which becomes Rte. 20. Continue west to Rte. 58. At Rte. 58, go left (south), through Wellington. Turn right (west) on Jones Road. The driveway to the reservoir will be on the right, past a housing development. If you get to the Wellington Reservation (on the left at 535 Jones Rd.) you have gone too far. The reservoir is across the street from Wellington Reservation.
