Beautiful drive
Jul 2021
I only drove through on Martin Luther King Drive, but the drive was really nice. It goes through a bunch of cultural gardens that looked beautiful. If I had time to stop and walk around I would have. That was the end of the nice driving in Cleveland. Honestly I'm surprised I didn't get carjacked in all the other neighborhoods I drove through.

Interesting but overlooked
May 2021
Some local residents don't seem to know these gardens exist. You can see them as you drive by on MLK Drive through Rockefeller Park. Each nationality in the city has a small garden, with statue or other marker, commemorating its presence or heritage. They are not breathtaking or amazing, but interesting to see.

Free Gardens
Jun 2021
Free commons area gardens nestled within a upscale neighborhood. Easily accessible from mass transit (RTA)
An excellent walk if the weather is good.

Very different
Apr 2021 • Couples
These gardens are very spread out so I recommend riding bikes and stopping at each garden. Some gardens are big and others are very small. It is very long if you walk it all. We drove through and saw the different gardens looking out the window. There are stone memorial/descriptions in each garden to read. Unfortunately it was raining when we were there so we did a short tour. It is obviously free. Would be nice for a long walk (5 miles), or to have a picnic in some of them.

Great for a Walk and to Learn about Other Cultures
Jul 2020
We were staying at Glidden House and decided to take a (long) walk to the Gardens. This was my first visit on foot--rather than just driving by.
The Gardens are a little hit and miss; some are more elaborate, others more modest. Not only are the plantings beautiful, but many of the gardens have history and information about the country being represented. It also gives an insight into the many different groups that have made the Cleveland area home.
We walked for a few hours and probably saw about 15 gardens. Not sure how you do this if you are in a car; parking is not available.

It took me 40-plus years to get here and it was worth the wait!
Jul 2020 • Couples
My husband is from Cleveland and I've been visiting for 40-plus years but this was my first time visiting the 33 cultural gardens, representing the ethnicity of groups who have settled in Cleveland. We parked our car on a side street and started walking. Each garden is marked with a green sign indicating the country it represents. Some of our favorites included Hungary, Ireland, and Italy, but we didnt see them all since we got caught in the rain and had to cut our visit short. It was very quiet on a Thur
morning which added to the experience; we only saw one other family. Many of the gardens are educational including busts and statues of famous citizens and plaques with history and cultural information. The hydrangeas were in full bloom and just beautiful. I would recommend downloading the map that's available online before you go. Also, there are guided tours on Saturdays which would be interesting. We loved our visit, and it's free!

Beautiful park

The Cleveland Cultural Gardens is a beautiful park whether walking or driving. There are many different and interesting spots throughout the park. It is a nice break from the city.

Unique Park and legacy of Immigration
Jul 2019 • Couples
The Cultural Gardens are a series of smaller areas within the public park around Martin Luther King Drive, each of which is dedicated to a specific culture that contributed to Cleveland. Historically, these have been built by immigrant communities. Most gardens feature some sort of monument to their respective culture (ranging from a simple statue of Shakespeare in the British Garden to a monumental staircase, fountains, and multiple statues in the Italian garden). A few are hidden from view (e.g. the Ruthenian garden is behind trees on a path by the creek). They are a great place to take a walk in the summer.
