“Cannot compare with Lake Metroparks”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 17, 2013

Used to live in Kirtland and loved Chapin Forest and Penetentiary Glen. Parks nearer to Broadview Heights don't appear to have the same appeal

“Fabulous park system circling Cleveland”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2013

This is an incredible park system covering over 20,00 acres around Cleveland. It has hundreds miles of bike trails, hiking trails and bridle trails, in addition to several golf courses, picnic areas, lakes and terrific fishing. It form a ring Necklace) of about 100 Miles around Cleveland from Rocky River on the west to Willouby on the east: as such it is accessible from any part of town. It is nearly continuously connected through 16 reservations, so that you can ride a bicycle for 80 miles without essentially exiting. There are fabulous hiking ranging from short walks to 15 strenuous miles across ravines and valleys in the north or south Chagrin Reservations. A truly tremendous and not well known asset of Cleveland.

“Fabulous CLEVELAND Asset!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 5, 2013

The Emerald Necklace is an amazing system of parks and a great place to visit. Each area of the park system has a unique specialty, so it would definitely help to check out all the options online before you head out to the park system.

The public golf courses are amazing - and many are quite tough! Sleepy Hollow is a family favorite.

The system is kept clean and monitored closely. My family loves to visit any of the parks for rollerblading, biking, running, picture taking or just a drive through on a sunny day.

If you don't have a lot of time just drive through this beautiful park on the east side of town just off the Shoreway highway.

“Great Jewel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 1, 2013

The Metro Parks are great for walking or bike riding. I feel safe but I would not suggest going at dusk or later. I have visited several locations and find them to be clean and well cared for.
