There’s A Battle Of Lake Erie Connection Hiding In Cleveland’s Fort Huntington Park

Cleveland is full of surprises, from the unforgettable (and often despised) Free Stamp to the unique people that call this city home. One of the best surprises in Forest City is the abundance of greenery amidst the concrete streets and neon signs. This lushness makes the community feel down-to-earth compared to some big cities, and each individual city park has a story to tell. One of the most surprising is Fort Huntington Park in Cleveland. It’s a small little city block, but it’s full of statues and stories alike. If you’ve walked or driven by this park a million times, it’s about time we take a visit. Check it out:
