I've been coming to these Metroparks for many years. The Rocky River Reservation is particularly nice do to the parkway going from the little waterfalls in Berea all the way to the docks in Lakewood. Fall is a photographers delight with a bright multicolored canopy the whole way through. Plenty of spots to stop off and cookout, great bike and... More

Our favorite local "park." We love to just drive through but the Nature Center and other amenities are great. Love, love, love our Cleveland Metroparks!

We enjoyed the trails and walking paths through this reservation. There were many things to do and lots of picnic areas. Paths near the river.

Trails, picnic tables, bbq's, a great nature center, plus fishing. This park has it all. A gorgeous walk or drive in the fall and you'll feel out of the city. There's playgrounds for the kids, and golfing.

This is one of the largest parks in the Cleveland metropark system. It has a wide variety of trails both in difficulty and length. there are interesting Indian mounds, marsh, hilltops and terrific birdwatching from the beautiful nature center. It tends to be one of the busier parks.

My sister and I visited this site for a nice walk along the trails. It was an average park, clean and well maintained with good parking. I was disappointed that I couldn't find any scenic views of the river from up high -- and some of the trails leading down to the river were small and overgrown.

I am in the Rocky River Reservation several times a week to either walk my dog or run. I love this park and it's one of my favorite parts of living in Lakewood. I usually use the paved multi-purpose trail which is many miles long and parallels the Rocky River. It's a lovely place to walk or run! I occasionally... More

I just love the park. Went fishing here as a kid, fell into Rocky River, necked with girls late at night...... It's as sweet a spot as ever, with all kinds of recreation and outdoor beauty. Cleveland is lucky to have such a gorgeous resource!

There's more to do in this section of the Metroparks than any other: Hiking and biking on the multipurpose trail; Nelly Belly restaurant at Emerald Necklace Marina; rent a kayak or standup paddleboard and head to Lake Erie at 41 North Kayaks; visit the Rocky River Nature Center; wet a fly for the spring/fall steelhead run; take fido to dog...
