Parks, Gardens and Zoos in Cleveland

Parks in Cleveland
A Cleveland Metro park Zoo and Rainforest has tropical plants and animals in a simulated rain forest environment, as well as an excellent outdoor zoo. At Edgewater Park, west of downtown, you can swim while enjoying a startlingly close up view of downtown. The park also has a fishing pier, bait shop, fitness course, playgrounds, and picnic facilities. The stiff wind off the lake attracts kite flyers, boomerang enthusiasts, windsurfers and the occasional hang glider. Drive through the Cleveland Cultural Gardens to see gardens representing more than 20 nationalities.

The Rockefeller Park Green house, the oldest civic horticultural center in the country, has seasonal flower and plant exhibits indoors; outside you will find a Japanese garden, a formal English garden, and a talking garden for people with vision impairments. In Aurora 30 mi southeast of Cleveland, Six Flags World of Adventure is a 750 acre family friendly park with wild rides, a water park and sea life park; it is closed weekdays in September and October and closed all week November – May.
