CHEERS Virtual Scavenger Hunt!
Weren’t able to join us for a Walkshop? Come check out the trails, parks, and views along the Eastern Lakefront by joining our virtual Scavenger Hunt! We’ve set up questions and activities for 8 sites along the Lake. Explore alone or with your friends and family. Visit as many as you’d like and complete the activity for at least one site to be entered into a raffle to win one of 15 gift cards!
As you explore the lakefront, keep an eye out for one-of-a-kind furniture designed and created by Cleveland-area teens through the Making Our Own Space, or MOOS, program. MOOS engages and empowers youth to transform public space; these pieces were conceived, designed, and built by students in the Buckeye-Shaker neighborhood of Cleveland and the Moreland and Lomond neighborhoods of Shaker Heights. MOOS is an initiative of the Cleveland Urban Design Collaborative, a program of Kent State University's College of Architecture + Environmental Design.

We are creating a community-focused resiliency plan for the eastern Cleveland lakeshore that will Embrace the Lake as an asset for future generations. The year-long study will focus on leveraging nature-based solutions to improve the environment, reconnect communities to the lake, enhance public health and wellness, bolster the economy, and improve aquatic and terrestrial habitats.
We want to hear from you. Help shape the future of the Lake by taking our Lakefront Survey today! Unable to take the survey online? Email or give us a call at 440-331-8593 for non-digital resources. #CHEERS #ClevelandLakefront
We are creating a community-focused resiliency plan for the eastern Cleveland lakeshore that will Embrace the Lake as an asset for future generations. The year-long study will focus on leveraging nature-based solutions to improve the environment, reconnect communities to the lake, enhance public health and wellness, bolster the economy, and improve aquatic and terrestrial habitats. We will be working with partners, stakeholders, and the community to identify priorities and interventions to improve resilience in the study area and adjoining neighborhoods. Preliminary technical design will explore project feasibility and advance select project components towards implementation.
Cleveland’s Lake Erie waterfront was initially developed with a focus on industry and transportation. Modern efforts to better utilize the lakefront as a community asset began in earnest with the City of Cleveland’s 2004 Waterfront District Plan. The plan, among other laudable goals, established the framework of increased connections to the lakefront, such as the realized Lakefront West project, and advocated for stewardship of publicly held lands, which has also been advanced with the 2013 acquisition by Cleveland Metroparks of lakefront parks.
The CHEERS effort will build upon previous goals and community momentum established in past plans. The team of WRT
, KS Associates
, and Great Ecology
were selected as the most qualified consultant to lead CHEERS. 12 teams of excellent local and national consultants responded to the Request for Qualifications.
