Beautiful gardens, well worth the drive up the MLK. We didn`t find any parking, so we just kept driving. (if there was parking, it wasn`t clearly posted). The flower beds and statues throughout the park were gorgeous. It looked like the perfect place for a wedding to be taking place.

Starting off the shoreway going south the Cleveland Cultural gardens start showing up on both sides of Martin Luther King almost immediately. There at least 23 different countries or ethnic groups represented and since about ten years ago when a new renewal started, more are being added or in the planning stage. Each garden is a representation of the country... More

We have done bike tours of the Cultural Gardens as day off trips, and I always love it. Being half Italian I love stopping here and it's always pretty cool. Very well attended (which is not the norm along the gardens) and a nice place to sit and rest.

The Italian Cultural Garden was dedicated in 1930 "as a symbol of the contribution of Italian culture to American democracy." It is designed in a formal Renaissance style with large walkways, balustrades and benches. Two large winding staircases lead down to a brick paved courtyard. The upper level Renaissance fountain is modeled after the fountain in Villa Medici in Rome,... More

We attended the Opera Per Tutti on July 21st and discovered a new treasure. Never having been to the Italian Cultural Garden before, we were completely awed by the gardens and enjoyed immensely the selection of favorite opera arias. The music, the wine, the food, the atmosphere, priceless. Thank you!

The entire area of cultural gardens offer some very beautiful spring plantings. The sculptures are varied, the plantings unique, and when things are in view it is a real WOW. I enjoy all of the gardens that are being restored. Some are still just a mess. You need to be aware of your surroundings because the area is isolated and... More

The garden is beautifully maintained with a quiet and relaxed feel while sitting and watching either the water fountain, a wedding, concert or just looking as the seasons change.

Italian Garden is just a part of this wonderful park. Ask for a recorded tour guide - it will show you through the entire line of gardens.
