With spring coming and summer quickly on its way, it's time to start thinking about where to host that next birthday party, graduation party, wedding or other gathering.
Cleveland Metroparks has many picnic areas with amenities that fit specific needs for outings and events. There are many shelters and/or canopies with picnic tables, grills and restrooms. Some areas also include ballfields, play equipment and horseshoe pits for park visitors to enjoy.
Many of these picnic areas are free for all to use on a shared basis. Over 30 picnic areas, shelters and/or canopies are available to rent for a fee on an exclusive-use basis.
In addition to picnic areas, there are several other Park District facilities available for rent, including the Chalet Recreation Area, which has grills, picnic tables, sand volleyball area, a ballfield, horseshoe pit, cornhole and swings. Rivergate, the indoor and outdoor facility located along the banks of the Cuyahoga River, or Waterside Room at the Emerald Necklace Marina, are smaller venues for meetings, showers, receptions and more.
Cleveland Metropark golf courses are available to rent, too, including Manakiki Ballroom and Courtyard, Sleepy Hallow Golf Course clubhouse, and Shawnee Hills, Big Met, and Seneca's grille and patio rooms.
And, for birthday parties, why not consider one of Cleveland Metroparks Outdoor Education Facilities. Located in six Park District reservations, these facilities offer a great space to host a party, tucked away in nature. Birthday party packages at these facilities also include an education interpretive program to add something memorable to that special day.
Individuals must be 21 or older to reserve a facility. Most Reserved Group Picnic Facilities are reserved for the day and available for use from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. Reservation fees vary depending on the day of the week and which facility is being used.
