Cleveland Metroparks Week….Day 1 @ Carly’z Corner

This week on Carly’z Corner we are going to focus on the Cleveland Metroparks.  The Metroparks offer more than just scenic views and walking and bike paths…they offer many free or low cost events for you to engage in.

Cleveland Metroparks is an extensive system of nature preserves in Greater ClevelandOhio. The various reservations, which largely encircle the city of  Cleveland, tend to follow the rivers and creeks that flow through the region. Wikipedia.

History and Heritage

There are things to do all year round at the Metroparks.  For example, early this year, in January, I took my girls to the Brecksville Nature Center (off of Chippewa Creek Drive) and we were able to feed the chickadees by hand!  The event was free to all, and even the sunflower seeds were FREE!

The Metroparks offers events across many venues….theater, music, education on farming, swimming, they have day camps for the kids,…..how about a BugFest! They offer great golf courses and golf lessons for the amateur!

:)…..:)…….:)…..I wanted to make my viewers aware of a FREE concert at the Garfield Reservation which is located at 11350 Broadway Ave., Garfield Heights, OH 44125.

On, July 24th, the park will host a free concert from 6:30pm – 8pm.The Raybans are playing and they are a steel drums band.  

The history of Garfield Park dates back almost a century. In 1894, the city of Cleveland purchased three farms, a half mile south of the city limits as a site for a new south side park. It was officially opened in 1895, as  Newburgh Park, and soon thereafter re-named Garfield Park.

Do you know what Garfield Park and Central Park in New York City have in common?  No, it is not horseback riding!

Well Enjoy! Stay Tuned, there are some great free things going-on in the Metroparks!

Happy Frrreeee Hunting!
