“Glorious, especially in autumn.”
Reviewed November 26, 2013

This is one of the nicest things about Cleveland. You think of this aging post industrial, rust eelt city and you would never guess the beauty that circles it. Let's not forget the Cuyahoga National Park also.

“The Cleveland Metropark system”
Reviewed November 25, 2013

This is a wonderful asset to the Greater Cleveland area. These series of parks surround the Lake Erie coast line as well as areas in and around the City of Cleveland and throughout Cuyahoga county. Well maintained and protected this park system offers many types of outings for the entire family, year round.

“I would give it 50 stars if I could”
Reviewed November 13, 2013

I am a trail monitor for the Metroparks so I am biased. I will be brief: the park system is the single most outstanding feature/attraction of the greater Cleveland area. There is something for everyone, close by. Safe, clean, and patrolled by the MetroPark Rangers (police force) and scores of volunteers who are there to assist and make being there a pleasant experience for all. No matter what your interest (golf, fishing, cycling,hiking, x-country skiing, kyaking, sailing) it is here. This is the first place I take visitors from out of town who are are first timers to the area and have heard all the nonsense about "how lousy Cleveland is".....

“Emerald Necklace is a great drive!”
Reviewed November 6, 2013

Many times over the years I have driven through the emerald necklace-all the way from Rocky River past Berea. It is very relaxing and the scenery is beautiful. There are many places to stop for a picnic or to take a hike. It's great bird watching, too! All in all a nice way to wind down after a day in the city!

“Surrounding Cleveland everywhere”
Reviewed November 6, 2013

This park sytsem is amazing. No matter which part of the city you are in, the Emerald Necklace has a park nearby. They all have hiking and biking trails, shelters, playgrounds. Ech one is a bit different with its own special features. Check them out!
