“So Many Places to See and Things to Do”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2013

You can ride your bike down the canal trail and then take the train back (from any station) for just $2! Szalai Farm in October has a great market (and cornfield maze). Kendall Cliffs a very interesting hike. Kendall Lake rents cross-country skis in the winter. Beaver dams, heron rookeries, restored villages, covered bridges, etc.

“Great park system tucked into a big city”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2013

We're very lucky to have such great parks here in Cleveland. The Metroparks do a great job of maintaining the parks. There are great hiking trails. Paved bike paths and picnic areas.

It's such a great asset to have, when we were looking to buy a house, we took into account the proximity to the Metroparks!

“Lovely Park System”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 25, 2013

This park system is large and well maintained. We like to run and walk on the trails. It is also used for biking, walking dogs, picnicking, and more.

“Beautiful!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 22, 2013

Sometimes it takes our out of town visitors to remind us of how lucky we are to have these parks here. For runners, bikers, walkers, families and everyone in between, the Emerald Necklace parks are a beautiful place to enjoy green space, quiet and lovely views any time of year.
