2. Take a walk at Tifft Nature Preserve

3. Take to the water at Canalside
Paddle boat or paddle bike your way through the water at Canalside. Enjoy the sights and sounds of the city while you experience Lake Erie at your own speed!
4. Unwind at Wilkeson Pointe Park
Sunbathe, picnic, or take a stroll at Wilkeson Pointe Park, located at 225 Fuhrmann Boulevard. There is plenty of parking and seating and if you time it right, you might even be able to join in on a free fitness class! Pro tip: this park is especially beautiful at sunset.
5. Row around Hoyt Lake
Rent a rowboat from Hoyt Lake Rowboats and enjoy a relaxing (and romantic!) afternoon on the water. The views of Delaware Park are stunning and people-watching on the shores isn't too shabby, either!
