Chagrin River Park

"An early-morning walk
is a blessing for the whole day."
Henry David Thoreau
This beautiful park, located in both Willoughby and Eastlake, is great for walking or running, picnicking and playing, wading and fishing, sitting by the fire, or watching your children play at one, or both, of the playgrounds.
There are just under three miles of tree-lined trails, a campfire ring with an abundant supply of firewood, two pavilions, grills and picnic tables, a volleyball court, and a sledding hill. On any given day, you will see runners, walkers, and families enjoying the trails, children playing on the playgrounds or in the water, and fishermen casting their lines in the river. You will probably see us there, too!
