I grew up in North Olmsted, a western suburb of Cleveland. When I was a teen, they began to call the parks surrounding the city "the Emerald Necklace." Now that system is called Cuyahoga County MetroParks. No matter what you call it, the whole system is lovely, and Rocky River is my favorite of all. When I was a little... More

The Rocky River Reservation has trails, fishing, a boat ramp, dog park, and a nice restaurant. Run, bike or walk the trails, just be courteous when passing.

The Rocky River Reservation, on the West Side of Cleveland, is part of the Emerald Necklace that borders around Cleveland. The "Reservation" though, is - without a doubt - the best park in the system. And it's huge. Two golf courses, horseback riding, fishing, swimming and dozens of picnic areas are here to greet you, all within an area laden... More

The GoApe zipline is marvelous, but be prepared to do some climbing as well as walking along hanging obstacles. They do a fine job of instruction and they watch you from the ground so it's quite safe. I'm 70 and I went with a 10 and 12 year old, and we all had a good time.

This is a beautiful park to visit. Nice trails for bikes and walking. I love to look at it from the Riverside Rd. view. It's stunning in the fall.

I don't "like" anything about this place. I LOVE EVERYTHING ABOUT IT, though! It's amazing that a place that this exists, particularly when, just a few steps away, is the hustle and bustle of the city life! Well done! I encourage everyone to vist

We took a family trip to Marina Necklace Picknick area and afterwards to the Nature Center and hiked up the Hill. Coming from City life this great Park is something where I would love to spend every one of my evenings. Either on the canoeing on the river, running, cycling or just walking with kids through the woods. The Nature... More

The Rocky River Reservation is a very large area with distinct areas. Some places have fantastic views, particularly when the leaves are changing during the fall season. I recently went to an area near North Olmstead and there were lots of frogs, ducks and birds to look at in their natural habitat. The Reservation has good places to ride your... More

Whether you are taking a drive, a walk, bike ride or looking for a picnic spot, Rocky River Reservation is for you. There is a massive bike trail that cuts through the entire park. The drive from Rocky River to Brecksville on Valley Parkway is peaceful and beautiful. There are literally hundreds of places to picnic. There is a learning... More
