Soo beautiful and what a great investment this state, the city of Cleveland, has made in this Metro Parks trail system. We had a picnic for our sons birthday at a spot he recommended. He lives here now due to a position he landed after college and we were visiting from upstate NY. This city would be a very nice... More

We played several Metroparks Golf Courses again this year. They were always in great condition and the Rangers moved play along. Manikiki yesterday was beautiful. But it is so nice to have excellent public courses so beautifully maintained

We go to the Brecksville Metropark with 4 and 6 year old grandchildren- throw stones in the river, walk the trails, visit the Nature Center. Such a peaceful place to spend a sunny day- not crowded at all because there is so much space to play . Drive to the Chippewa Creek area to walk along the River and skip... More

I live in Cleveland and utilize the Cleveland Metroparks on a regular basis. The park system is known locally as the "Emerald Necklace" as it basically surrounds the city. The park system offers something for everyone regardless of the season. Summer time land based.activities include hiking, biking, and fishing. For those more interested in an aquatic adventure, swimming, kayaking, paddle... More

Hidden among Cleveland's suburban neighborhoods is a beautiful interconnecting park system coined "the Emerald Necklace" because when you look at it on a map, it is shaped just like that. There are several "reservations" of the park that each have something unique about them. Many have bridle paths, mountain bike trails, hiking trails, walking paths, fishing areas, golf courses, Lake... More

I run the trails Metroparks trails in North Chagrin, South Chagrin and Brecksville Reservations nearly every weekend throughout the year. They compare very nicely with the segments of the Buckeye Trail and other trails in the Cuyahoga National Park. They provide hills, interesting scenery and they are well maintained, but challenging. They are conveniently located for residents in the metropolitan... More

Cleveland metroparks is not a place. To me it is a way of life. Thank you Cleveland for allowing us all to have such a great place to experience nature and learn as well. Most of my best times during the summer is spending time at the many different parks and enjoying the things each have to offer.
