Hayrides will begin this Saturday, October 7 at Mill Stream Run Reservation and will be offered every Saturday in October from 6 to 10 p.m. Hayrides are offered on a first-come, first-served basis, and leave approximately every half hour. Hay Throwing is permitted on our Hayrides and is a Chalet Tradition. Wagons can be covered and operate rain or shine and are ADA accessible.
The Chalet Recreation Area is located at 16200 Valley Parkway in Strongsville, between state Routes 42 and 82 - just off I-71 and the Ohio Turnpike. For more information on private group rentals or new hayrides geared towards young children without hay throwing, visit: clevelandmetroparks.com
