The Rocky River Reservation is a wonderful experience for anyone seeking refuge from the big city within the big city. It is one of a few places where nature dominates and industrial landscape and is highly recommended by me to go and visit and walk and drive.

Fortunate to live 20 min away from this park. It's beautiful all-year round but i feel it is most gorgeous in the fall. I love the fact that there's many things to see and do---there's a marina, a small cafe close to it, dog park, golf courses, stables, marshes, soccer fields, etc. There are always fishermen on the river. Great... More

The Cleveland Metro-Parks are a hidden gem, a must see for anyone visiting the area. There a miles a nice roadways that go though-out the park system. For walking, hiking, or biking there is plenty to see and do. Our favorite spot are in the Rocky River Reservation, the river runs all the way. The Donnelly Nature Center is wonderful.... More

The only down side to the Metro Parks is not enough restroom facilities. It's a great place anytime of the year.

Taking a walk in this park was my favorite thing on my quick trip to Cleveland. Very beautiful forested trails along the river, bridal trail, picnic facilities, and play areas.

A beautiful metropolitan park that follows the Rocky River valley. Great nature center, numerous hiking paths from wheelchair accessible to a bit challenging. Bike/all purpose trail, 3 golf courses, fishing, historic village. It has it all!

You don't need a plan to visit the RRR. Any day, any time dawn to dusk. Best done with a bottle of water/soda and quick box lunch. Or old fashioned picnic basket for the family. You'll find a quiet stroll or game of catch works well, also. Have Fun!

I live very close, so I spend much of my outdoor time here. Bike, hike, run, kayak, boat, golf.....RRR has it all. I can't say enough good about the metroparks in general....one of the most magnificent park systems in the US. When I have visitors in from out of town this is one of the first places I take them,...
