Known as the emerald necklace....the park system forms a ring around the city. Various other system parks speckle the city as well. Most offer ranger programs, a visitor center, sporting fields, picnic areas, and hiking amongst other attractions.

The "emerald necklace" was built by landscape architects from the firm of Olmsted and Vaux - the designers of Central Park in Manhattan and Prospect Park in Brooklyn NY. The Metroparks are superb for hiking and bird watching. I most often park in the North Chagrin Nature Center because this location is closest to my home. The Nature Center rents... More

Cleveland Metroparks offer a wide variety of hiking trails and picnic areas. The trails are well maintained, with smooth paths for bikers and hikers. Cleveland has a lot to offer with our sports teams (forget the Browns) museums and theatres. Despite the fickle weather, it is really a great place to live.

My family had all of our picnics in the metroparks. We love playing games and cooking out. Also we like exploring, either walking, hiking, or biking. The stairs behind the nature center are fun and can be challenging in a good way, no worries there are landings to stop and look at the views.

Cleveland Metroparks is a beautiful park system filled with picnic areas, great bike and walking trails, and full of hiking trails throughout each location - east, west, north and south, in the greater Cleveland area and surrounding suburbs.

I moved to Cleveland for work having come from the west. That said walking and hiking in the Metropark system is an incredible experience. Get away from the roads and you think you are in the middle of nowhere. Hard to believe these gems are laced throughout Cleveland!
