It’s a common misconception that big cities are void of natural spaces and outdoorsy activities. In a place as bustling as Cleveland, many would expect to encounter a mere concrete jungle… what they’ll discover, however, is an incredible array of parks and natural spaces hidden amongst a bustling cityscape. One of the loveliest outdoor escapes is hidden in University Circle, and locals are always more than willing to share their hidden beauty with visitors.

While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately.
