Warm sweaters, cozy socks, crisp air and fresh apple cider. The
only thing missing is an idyllic ride in Cleveland Metroparks on a
haywagon! Every Saturday evening and Sunday afternoon in October,
see the changing leaves while riding in an old-fashioned haywagon
at the Chalet Recreation Area in Strongsville.
The tractor-drawn hayrides are offered October Saturday nights
(October 6, 13, 20 and 27) from 6 to 10 p.m. and Sunday afternoons
(October 7, 14, 21 and 28) from 1 to 4 p.m. Don't hurry home after
the ride is over. A hay maze is also available, as well as
additional family entertainment. Plus, Saturday nights, enjoy
do-si-do-ing at square dancing for all ages! And on Sundays, enjoy
other traditional fall activities such as pumpkin painting (for a
nominal fee) and crafts and coloring stations will also be
available. Rides are offered on a first-come, first-served basis,
and leave approximately every half hour. The hayrides cost $8 for
adults, $6 for children, ages 3 to 11, and free for children 2 and
under (must sit on adult lap).
Private hayrides are also available before, during and after the
public rides for $150 per wagon and can fit 20 to 25 people.
Private �dayrides� are also available at $95 per wagon and are
perfect for outings such as preschool trips, senior and family
picnics or business getaways.
Horse-Drawn Wagon Rides
On Sunday, October 21 from 4 to 7 p.m., listen to the clip-clop
of horses' hooves on special Horse-Drawn Hayrides. The special
horse-drawn hayrides are $12.50 per person for a half-hour ride.
Gather friends and family together for a leisurely ride through the
park. Sip on hot cider or hot chocolate and enjoy a snack while a
horse-drawn wagon trots through the idyllic scenery of autumn.
Horse-drawn rides are by reservation only and space is limited.
The Chalet Recreation Area is located on Valley Parkway in Mill
Stream Run Reservation, between Routes 42 and 82 in
