Park
“Part of Cleveland's "Emerald Necklace" it offers some of the best views of downtown Cleveland from the west side. Features a fishing pier, picnic areas with grills, a playground, and a beach. Don't be surprised to see surfers in full-body suits riding the Lake Erie waves in the winter time (when the lake's not frozen.)”

“Great neighborhood restaurant that happens to be one of the city's top modern dining destinations. Chic but casual space, and very unique collection of evolving unconventional seasonal menu items. Most fun to go with others and order rounds of different small plates. This is where you want to go when you want to avoid traditional, but not pay exorbitant prices. We enjoy snack time (happy hour) at the bar and get half off bottle of wine! It is also next door to the popular Platform Brewery and too far walk from Forest City Shuffleboard when you are ready to bar hop. ”
