Nice beach
Jul 2021
Decided to go to Edgewater Beach as I've never seen Lake Erie and wanted to stick a toe in the water. It was difficult figuring out how to get there as Google maps was not giving me an accurate place to turn. Then got stopped at numerous red lights and the one way streets were making me crazy.

First got to the westernmost part of the beach area on Upper Edgewater Drive (which the map says is Lower West parking) and took some photos. It was a nice overlook, but as far as I could tell there was no access to the beach to the west there. I only saw a road going east that said it was going to a dog beach. No thanks. Dogs ruin everything.

Got back in the car and drove further east. Found the Cleveland sign and took more pics but wasn’t comfortable doing much else in that spot because it looked like a drug dealer was hanging out there.

Drove to the end of the road and it only took me to that stupid dog beach. Thankfully no dogs. It was a rainy day. However, the path to the beach was down a steep hill with steps and it was still hot and incredibly muggy. Funny how the nasty dog beach is right next to a smelly sewer. Other than that, once you get past the sewer it was a nice beach. Never figured out how to drive to the eastern side of the park.

Very Relaxing to just sit and watch the water and the parasailers. Great spot for photos of town and the "Cleveland " sign. Nice walking trails.

Cleveland Peace
Jul 2021
Relaxing spot close to downtown welcomes bikers, runners, dog walkers, skate boarders, beach bums, people watchers, bible studiers, meditators, exercisers, fishermen, swimmers, and nature lovers who will all enjoy this peaceful spot just down the lake from the city center. I would be here at least weekly if I live in Cleveland!

Excellent Park along Lake Erie
Jun 2021
Edgewater Park and Beach is located on Whiskey Island Drive near West 73rd Street, just west of Cleveland. Beautiful park along Lake Erie. Park includes a wonderful circular walk (about 3 miles), a Marina and Yacht Club, large family friendly beach with lifeguard, separate dog friendly beach, more than one playground and picnic areas , numerous picnic tables and benches throughout the Park. Not certain, but they may rent kayaks. The Park is well maintained and very clean and there is a large free parking lot near the beach and many free parking lots at various places around the Park. Thoroughly enjoyed a stroll around the Park. Will definitely revisit when again in Cleveland. Recommend.

Nice views

The park has changed hands several times. It was a city park, a state park, and now it's part of the Metroparks system. People go for picnics, swimming, kite flying, and other outdoor activities. There were some crime issues several years ago, and nearby neighborhoods aren't the upper crust of Cleveland, so use some common sense caution. Swimming is prohibited on days when Cleveland's antiquated municipal "plumbing" dumps raw sewage into the Lake after big storms.

beautiful spot!
Jun 2021
This is a beautiful park to visit. We were there in the afternoon and it was clean and I felt safe there. We got pictures of the Cleveland script. The lake is breathtaking! We actually saw a girl walking a fox on a leash! There is a path to the beach by the shelter. You can walk the trail to get to the shelter or drive and park in the lot at the shelter. The shelter has a lot of birds flying around and lots of bird poop. I'm not sure I would eat there, but it does have a restroom.

Great walk

We walked down from the brewery to the park and enjoyed the space. It’s a big park with a lot of room. You can walk right down to Lake Erie, get on the pier, or just hang out on the grass.
