We loved the amazing views of lake Erie and we saw many animals - deer, wild turkeys, herons, buzzards, and many other kinds of birds. We went for a homeschool program put on by CMNH and it was great. Will definitely go back again. They...More

This Lakefront Nature Preserve is a beautiful outdoor experience. The trails are enchanting--well-mowed grass trails in the midst of bird meadows, great Lake Erie views from the Overlook and from the lakefront trail. Highly recommended!

Good walking loop of over 1+ miles. Great lake frontage with abundant bird life along migratory path to Canada and South America. Some vehicle noise given proximity of I-90. Great urban-placed reserve with dirt-based trails, so easy on the legs and feet.

We took a drive out to Cleveland Lakefront State Park and the Nature Reserve during a recent trip to Cleveland as we expanded our horizons beyond downtown. It's easy enough to get to at the top of MLK Drive, north of I-90 where it runs...More

Visited this park on the 4th of July. Lots of mosquitos. Trail is mostly grassy and surrounded by tall grasses, wildflowers and trees. Lots of birds but extremely limited lake views.

Raw beauty, transformation of brownfield. A little rough, but we went on a bitterly cold day. Great opportunity to get another perspective. Trail muddy and rough in places
