The Coupling Reserve is made up of 20 sloping and river-bottom acres. The reserve was donated to the Erie MetroParks in 1991 by the nonprofit Coupling Corporation, which for years had operated the property as a spiritual retreat center. Built around a historic railroad theme, the reserve grounds are open to the general public from 8 a.m. to dark year-round.
Columbia Reservation includes four miles of gravel trails, boardwalks, playground, and picnic area with reservable shelter. The reservation includes a 264-acre wetland mitigation project.

Caley is a semideveloped park reserved for wildlife and nature study. Its 507 acres include wetlands, forest, and field habitats, including two large ponds and Wellington Creek, which runs roughly through the middle of the reservation. Two popular activities include wildflower hikes and fishing, but visitors are welcome just to come and enjoy the quiet and natural beauty of this unique park.
This park provides natural relief to the metropolitan skyline. Sand beaches, tree-lined picnic areas, and panoramic views of the lake are found within the park along the Lake Erie shoreline.

The gardens are a unique group of nationality gardens running through Rockefeller Park from Superior Avenue to St. Clair Avenue along Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard. The Shakespeare Garden, initiated by the Daughters of the British Empire, was opened in 1916. Leo Weidenthal established this chain of gardens with the dedication of the Hebrew Garden in 1926.
In the late 1970s, the Summit County Metro Parks developed a plan to transform 1,500 acres of land in the Cuyahoga River and Little Cuyahoga River valleys near downtown Akron into a unique urban park called Cascade Valley.

Charlemont is a 757-acre, undeveloped park located in the main farming region of southern Lorain County. It's the only reservation in the Lorain County Metro Parks system that allows rabbit and pheasant hunting. The park is also a favorite of horseback riders, who are free to enjoy the equestrian trails built and maintained by the Lorain County chapter of the Ohio Horse Council.
In 1993, Lake Metroparks acquired 101 acres along the Chagrin River, located in the communities of Eastlake and Willoughby. Most of the park's natural areas are made up of dense shrubs, with pockets of mature forest bordering wetland areas. The Chagrin River is the park's southern boundary. Look for great blue herons, kingfishers, bank swallows, and sandpipers near the river.

The Cuyahoga Valley National Park protects 33,000 acres along the banks of the Cuyahoga River. Though such a short distance from urban environments, the park is worlds away. The winding Cuyahoga -- the "crooked river," as Native Americans called it -- gives way to rolling floodplain, steep valley walls, ravines, and lush upland forests. The park is a refuge for flora and fauna, and provides both recreation and solitude for Northeastern Ohio residents and visitors.
