A very good place for people who like the outdoors. Whole park is well kept and there are many areas to see. Fishing, hiking, golf, biking, you name it. A must see.

Most beautiful "city" park in the US. You can drive around the whole city of Cleveland through it. Lots of attractions within, like golf, stables, picnic areas. Designed by Frederick Law Olmsted, the designer of Central Park in NYC.

This reservation I consider one of the best of the Cleveland Metroparks. Gorgeous walking trails and nature center. The stairs up to the top of the ridge is a beautiful short walk as well. Go in fall to see pano views of colored leaves!

This is what I believe to be one of the better Metroparks in the Cleveland Metropark system. The trails are well-maintained, well-marked, and are kept in good shape. There is some views of the river from higher altitudes, within the park, but other than that,...More
