Did you know that Cleveland has a lake? After being buried away for many years near an inner suburb totally disconnected from the waterfront, I have discovered life on Lake Erie.
The Cleveland Metroparks recently acquired Edgewater Park, formerly owned by the Ohio state park system. They’ve totally revamped park usage in Cleveland. Tonight, there are thousands of Clevelanders out at the beach listening to music, eating food from our food trucks, doing yoga and trying stand up paddle boarding.
Now I’m here relaxing, at a beautiful lake just 2 miles from my home. I biked here along the west side city streets and metropark bike trail. It made me feel like a true urban commuter and Clevelander. I can’t wait to do this again.
