I love to walk and bike here.

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

Nice, maintained asphalt bike trails. Nice views & mix of hills, open air and woods, all along side the river. Mile markers are very helpful. I go every chance I get.

I have been going to the Metroparks since the 1960's but haven't spent much time there in the last 15 years. I amazed at how fantastic it is now. I recently took visitors from Italy thru the western 6-8 miles ending at Sweetwater landing. Great relaxing couple hours spent on a Sunday at noon, drinking a milkshake and listening to... More

Part of the Emerald Necklace of greater Cleveland. Four seasons of fun, relaxed, no pressure, not crowded. Be aware of drivers

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
