I grew up two blocks from the Rocky River Reservation and I still live very close. Though it is but a small fraction of the 19,000 acres of Cleveland's fabulous ''Emerald Necklace,'' it is the part I know & therefore, love best! I often take walks & have picnics there with friends or family. As a youngster, I examined virtually... More

We didn't had enough time to explore. The different parks that make up the necklace are distinctive and many have nature walks, talks, floral features and more. We didn't do our research before we came. Definitely would have signed up for a few things, The green in the city…. ALways wonderful.

It is part of the Emerald Necklace parks and is a wonderful place to picnic, walk, ride a bike and fish.

A great asset to the area. Miles of hiking, jogging, and biking trails. Woodsy. Very easy to get back in touch with nature. Picnic, kayak, golf, or just experience a quiet morning walk, this place has it all!

We live five minutes from the Rocky River Reservation. This gorgeous park with woodland trails and fields is a rich blessing. The walking/biking paths are paved and the walkers/bikers share the same path which can be tricky mid day on a Saturday or Sunday. Every season is filled with wonders--birds, plants, fish, streams, trees, deer and other wildlife. The picnic... More

We love to drive through the valley whenever we are in town. I remember so many weekends hanging out at the "green barn"

The Rocky River reservation has it all. If you like horses, check out the stables off of Puritas Hill. Make sure you check in first with the staff. There are lessons available for people of all ages and lots of kids programs as well. There's decent fishing either at the mouth of the river by the boathouse/marina, or through the... More

We were baby sitting my Grandog so we decided to pack a picnic and get outside for some hiking. There are lots of trails and they have a really nice Nature center that is pet friendly.

Great for a bike ride along the paved trail, terrific views of the river. The hiking trails around the Nature Center are well marked ~ but you still get the feeling you are miles from civilization. Take the time to enjoy some quality time in the great outdoors!

I live close to this park and can access three different entrances each within 10 minutes from my house via bike. The park is beautiful up close or viewing from above. The trail near the Nature Center offers amazing views of the park below (you'll first need to walk up many steps). There are plenty of public areas to picnic... More
