State Park summer selections
Summer has finally arrived and there are many things to do at your local state park (Wildwood, Villa Angela, Euclid Beach). With playgrounds, picnic areas, fishing piers, boat ramps, beaches, and multi-purpose trails there are many opportunities to get out and enjoy the outdoors with your family. If you’re not sure about exploring on your own why not join one of the park sponsored activities? There are programs for discovering nature, canoeing, fishing, and much more. The complete schedule is available online by visiting the park website at www.clevelandlakefront.org and clicking on ‘Naturalist Programs’ or check out the bulletin board next time you’re at the park. And best of all, these activities are FREE!!!
Cleveland Lakefront State Park is also pleased to announce the opening of the new nature center - The Exploration Station, located at the park office building (8701 Lakeshore Blvd, Cleveland, 44108 – right at MLK & Lakeshore). The Exploration Station is housed in retrofitted office space and contains lots of hands on activities and exhibits about Lake Erie and aquatic environments. Last month nearly 100 people attended the grand opening event. The facility is open to the public during scheduled hours – check the website above or park bulletin boards for details. The facility is also available for private group visitation and programming (schools, scouts, etc.).
