Wade Chapel Reopens at Lake View

Cleveland's most prestigious final address, Lake View Cemetery, reopens two local landmarks today after their annual winter hiatus: the 1901 Wade Memorial Chapel and the 1890 President James A. Garfield Monument. Like just about everything in this cemetery/outdoor museum, both structures have historic and architectural significance. Garfield's Monument is a Gothic-style fortress of Berea sandstone, towering 180 feet above its hilltop setting. Plus, it is Garfield's final resting place: The 20th President's flag-draped casket is on full display in the lower-level crypt, along with that of his wife. But we like the Wade Chapel better: A gleaming white example of Neo-Classical design, with one of the world's last remaining interiors entirely designed by noted glass artist Louis Comfort Tiffany, it's an awe-inspiring reminder of the days when Cleveland industrialists ruled this world and the next. Both gems will be open to the public today from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.; interpretive guides will be on hand to answer your questions. It's free. The cemetery's Cleveland entrance is at 12316 Euclid Ave., and the Cleveland Heights entrance is at the intersection of Mayfield and Kenilworth roads. Learn more at lakeviewcemetery.com. — Cicora

Swim at a Public Pool



 For those of us not lucky enough to have a friend with a pool, the region’s public swimming offerings are the next best thing. There are, of course, Cleveland’s public pools, but with erratic openings based on temperatures and staffing, they are hardly worth counting on. Luckily, you can snag a guest day pass in many suburbs where the water is warm and the beach chairs bountiful: Dragga Pool in Mayfield Heights will run you $10 as a non-resident, Walter’s Grove in Parma will cost you just $6, Parma Heights’ primo pool awaits for $8, Foster and Becks Pools in Lakewood will let you in for $5.50, and Beachwood’s absolutely stunning outdoor aquatic center will refresh and entertain you for $10.
