Lived coast to coast and in between. MP is unique. Hiking and all purpose trails, lakefront, farmland, nature preserves, waterfalls, caves, play & picnic areas. Connections to other reservations. The ability to drive THRU the parks, not just drive TO them and then park. Btw, it is FREE. I recommend the southern reservations such as Garfield and Brecksville. Also, cuyahoga... More

The Metro park system is awesome! You can enjoy the park year round with your family, friends, or by yourself. The park is spread out over the greater Cleveland area and is easily accessible. The great thing is there are no fees to access the park! Worth the visit.

I have traveled extensively through out the country and always take my dog so I am always looking for the local parks/metro parks. I can say without hesitation the Cleveland Metro Park system is one of the best by far. Even better they do not charge for admission - in various states I have been to including our neighbor to...

The Emerald Necklace-Nickname for clevelands metropark system-is probably unsurpassed by any in any major metropolitan city in america. It completely surrounds the city, from Huntington park on the west-to millcreek to the southwest-to Brecksville southeast-on into Bedford and Chagrin-and finally forming a ring around the eastern inner-ring suburbs. It is miles and miles of green space, picnic tables, bike trails,... More

How fortunate we are to be surrounded by nature and opportunities to explore nature in our backyard. I am involved in a weekly hiking group that explore the Cleveland Metroparks regularly. The guides and naturalists are informative and interesting. There are multitudes of wonderfully planned activities for people of all ages. Don't waste time fretting about what to do... a... More

The Cleveland Metroparks is my very favorite place to go in the Cleveland area. The tow path is the most peaceful place on earth. We go there almost every week from spring to fall and enjoy the peace and beauty of God's creation. The running trails and picnic areas in all communities have there own uniqueness. The Emerald necklace is... More

Bike, hike, run, swim, kayak, check out elephants, or just look for a quiet, peaceful setting where you can relax, the Cleveland Metroparks has everything you could want and more. From sweeping city views to secluded waterfalls the "Emerald Necklace" is one of Cleveland's treasures.

I have had the opportunity to enjoy the Cleveland metro parks regularly for more years than I would care to mention. For those of you from elsewhere the metroparks are quite large, you can drive around the urban area via the park. There's something for everyone. I don't know how many golf courses. Hiking and bike trails are heavily used... More

Beautiful place to commune with nature. Home to blue herons, bald eagles, wildflowers, ducks and geese. Beautiful bike paths worth visiting spring, summer and fall

Settlers Landing was my favorite relaxing inviting easily accessible by the RTA rapid rail from Tower Center a $5.00 pass rides you to all those in the downtown area. Do not hesitate to use the RTA the conductors and drivers are smart and willing to help you and for 5 dollars a day it a steal
