Don't hibernate this December! Winter is a great time of year to venture outside and enjoy cold weather activities. Cleveland Metroparks 18 reservations offer a variety of winter recreation experiences ranging from sledding and tobogganing to snowshoeing and cross-country skiing. This year the Park District has created unique opportunities for park visitors to have some wintry fun at Edgewater Park in Cleveland Metroparks Lakefront Reservation.
Beginning December 19, park guests can see the largest snowman on Lake Erie, a great winter photo opportunity with a group or as a selfie. This man-made snowman stands over 16 feet tall and was constructed in-house by the Cleveland Metroparks Visual Communications division. But unlike Frosty, this snowman won't melt into a puddle of water. The gigantic snowman will be standing tall at Edgewater Park through the month of January from 6 am. to dusk, daily.
And children and adults will have a blast navigating the twists and turns of a self-guided maze while learning cool, fun facts about Lake Erie: Is Lake Erie the deepest lake in the Great Lakes? How many people get their tap water from Lake Erie annually? Find out the answer to these and other questions while traveling through the maze structure. Questions printed on graphic exhibit panels are located at six different intersections. Correct answers lead guests on the right path to the next question. Incorrect answers take participants in the wrong direction or to a dead end. Go through the maze again and again until all questions have been answered correctly (or as many times as you'd like).
�We encourage everyone to join us at Edgewater Park for some frosty fun, wonderful photo opportunities and a chance to make warm memories with family and friends,� said Brian Zimmerman, chief executive officer of Cleveland Metroparks.
