I think the layout of the walking trails are wonderful. I also love the Nature Center. Great for all ages. I took my daughter there when she was in elementary school . Now she is a teenager and she still loves it.

If you travel to Cleveland you must visit the park system! It is one of a kind. There are pleasant all purpose trails for walking jogging photography bicycling. A pleasant car ride is highly recommended any time of year.

This has been one of my favorite places to go since I was a little kid, especially in the fall.

Whether if its just a brisk walk or hike to hours...it's a hidden gem tucked away in the hustle bustle of suburbs and city. So well maintained by Metro Parks ...such a great and amazing job on their parts ... always worth time from the day to visit

A great place to enjoy yourself. There's fishing, boating, hiking and foot trails , a Nature Center and plenty of places for that family picnic. I live nearby and have spent countless hours in the Park or Valley as us natives call it. It's unbelievable to have such a place in the middle of a city. A must see for... More
