Great place to walk rollerblade, bike or run in several parks that surround the city. Some of the parks have facilities. Some have rentals. Need to check each park.

We love the Emerald Necklace series of parks in the Cleveland metropolitan area! The toboggan run in Strongsville, golf at the Rocky River Reservation and bike riding on the endless biking/walking trail. The only complaint I have is that on busy days at the parks the bike trail can be crowded and difficult to negotiate due to walkers, runners, dog... More

Get the monthly magazine and find those free events throughout the year - month - date - locations. To get this magazine, you have to call yearly for it to be mailed to your residence - but it is worth it. I circle the locations that I prefer and the dates that I am available.

Did a 50 mile bike ride with my friend. Scenery is amazing! Going in and out of woods, by parks and rivers. Just overall very peaceful and fun and wouldn't feel like you surrounded by a city!

The Emerald Necklace is the 70-mile parkway and adjoining reservations that circle the entire city of Cleveland. Most of the 70 miles has a paved hike/bike trail parallel to road. It is a great place to get away for some peace and quiet.

Almost every date I have ever been on has been in one of the Cleveland Metroparks. We have birthdays in the parks as well as other family gatherings. Perfect for exploring, biking, running, walking, learning, getting some fresh air. A great day out always.

This is one of the nicest things about Cleveland. You think of this aging post industrial, rust eelt city and you would never guess the beauty that circles it. Let's not forget the Cuyahoga National Park also.

This is a wonderful asset to the Greater Cleveland area. These series of parks surround the Lake Erie coast line as well as areas in and around the City of Cleveland and throughout Cuyahoga county. Well maintained and protected this park system offers many types of outings for the entire family, year round.

I am a trail monitor for the Metroparks so I am biased. I will be brief: the park system is the single most outstanding feature/attraction of the greater Cleveland area. There is something for everyone, close by. Safe, clean, and patrolled by the MetroPark Rangers (police force) and scores of volunteers who are there to assist and make being there... More

Many times over the years I have driven through the emerald necklace-all the way from Rocky River past Berea. It is very relaxing and the scenery is beautiful. There are many places to stop for a picnic or to take a hike. It's great bird watching, too! All in all a nice way to wind down after a day in... More
