Edgewater Beach

Just minutes from downtown Cleveland, Edgewater Beach is located between the Memorial Shoreway (Route 2) and Lake Erie. Cleveland Metroparks has been operating Edgewater Park since 2013.  

Edgewater Beach, located in lower Edgewater Park, has something from everyone.  Make a day of it and rent a cabana along the shoreline or join a pick-up game of beach volleyball. Stroll along the beach while enjoying a delicious scoop of Honey Hut ice cream from Eats and Treats concession stand. Experience panoramic views of downtown Cleveland from the shore and experience a breath-taking sunset.  

Looking to fish? Perch, walleye, smallmouth bass and steelhead are some of the fish you may find in Lake Erie.
