We visited here while visiting other attractions in this area. It is a lovely green space with a lake and grassy lawn. It's a nice area to walk or relax for a bit.

Beautiful area in stark contrast to the run-down areas of Cleveland near Case Western. Look for the area of Little Italy up the hill after driving through the Case Western campus.

Yes, the Tudor Arms is a couple blocks away and there are a number of others. There are also restaurants, the best being in Little Italy. And the cafe in the Art Museum is wonderful for lunch.
