The Emerald Necklace is a series of inter-connected public parks that encircle the greater Cleveland area. Every season offers something special and unique - from waterfalls to hiking, from horseback paths to cookouts.

A day spent starting on the east or west side, and making the trip around each park until you reach the opposite side of Cleveland, takes 4-5 hours, depending upon how much you stop to view the highilghts of each park. In Fall, the leaves are outstanding, and you can make short detour from the park into the Cuyahoga Valley National Park to further enhance the experience.

If you love nature, this is the place to be in the Cleveland area.

The Emerald Necklace is a series of merto parks in the Cleveland suburbs. There are various sections or parks. You could go on their web site for more information. I enjoy jogging in the parks.

As a nearby resident all I can say is "What a treasure we have in our own backyards" and "Thank you to those with the foresight to kept this a natural reserve".

Nice place to ride bikes, walk or jog around 60 miles of trails. Parts of it on Lake Erie. You could swim in the park at Edgewater?

always a pleasant drive, especially during the Fall with the changing colors. Lots of safe places to walk, jog or bike. Many picnic and grill locations. Just enjoyable to drive through. Use it as a relaxing short cut whenever possible.
