Near the nature center there is a 'bike repair station' that we used to put air in our stroller tire. I have never seen one of these before and just thought it was really cool. A beautiful place.

Stop by to visit the nature center, enjoy sitting on the deck or move along one of the many paved or dirt trails or paths...no better way to get in your walking or running time. The Metropark system stretches across five counties of second growth forest. Enter from Detroit Rd in Lakewood into the Rocky River valley and take a... More

Drive thru, walk or bike,thru this portion of Metro park better known to old timers as part of the emerald necklace that wraps around parts of Cleveland. Fishing in some parts. A nice nature center to take kids or watch the birds.

We took a class field trip Rocky River Nature Center and the experience was first class. I initially called to make an appointment for a tour and spoke with Suzi M. Suzi was very professional and enthusiastic. She asked about the dynamics of my students so she could recommend the best tour & naturalist. We were paired with Jen B,... More

Have used the facilities many times. From golf to just picnicking the reservation has something and some place for everyone. It is one of the best places in and around Cleveland.

This is a terrific and well maintained park. We went on a Sunday, and walked around, and rented kayaks from 41 North. We chatted with a ranger, and enjoyed the space. This is a nice, local place to bring friends, launch your boat, or have a picnic.

I have been everywhere throughout the metroparks, a total peaceful serene environment. I always feel safe and happy while taking a walk, a bike ride, hiking or even just sitting by the water for a beautiful view! I would recommend this for everyone, no matter who you are - you will be happy for going. The reservation is always kept... More

The Metroparks in Cleveland, also called "The Emerald Necklace", is a shining jewel for the city to take great pride in. Consisting of a number of "reservations" that circle the metropolitan area, "the park" offers beautiful natural preserves all easily accessible for the public to explore and enjoy. There is access to the rivers, lakefront, beaches, picnic areas with pavilions,... More

We are beyond fortunate to have this fabulous system of green spaces in our area. Having grown up outside of this area, I can tell you it's not common.
