Washington Reservation (including Rivergate)

Located in Newburgh Heights the 59-acre Washington Reservation is Cleveland Metroparks 15th reservation. Golf enthusiasts will enjoy an Audubon Certified nine-hole golf course, a First Tee of Cleveland Golf Learning Center, and a 30-station driving range. History buffs will enjoy the U.S.S. Maine Memorial and the American Legion Memorial that are found near the entrance of the park. The soccer, football or baseball fields, picnic shelter, rehabilitated arboretum and wetlands, or the all purpose trail with its neighborhood links will make the venture to Washington Reservation both easy and well worth the trip for any park visitor. This is also the home of the Washington Park Environmental Studies Academy which is part of the Cleveland Municipal School District.

1.1-mile of all purpose trail along E. 49th Street and Washington Park Boulevard connects to Ohio & Erie Canal Reservation at East 49th Street and Grant Avenue.


Rivergate, a 2.8 acre parcel in the center of Cleveland's Flats District, will serve as Cleveland Metroparks recreational hub along the Cuyahoga River. A waterfront promenade, a concession area, and restrooms are also under development.
