The Brecksville Reservation of the Cleveland Metroparks is regarded as one of the best local park systems in the country.
From The Brecksville Stables which provides horseback riding lessons, pony camps, therapeutic riding and more, along with trails throughout the Brecksville Reservation is quite an amenity for a suburban community.
There are many all purpose hiking, biking, jogging and walking trails throughout the reservation, along with a nature center staffed by knowledgeable individuals who are there to provide seminars, education and various events -- my family and I went on a night excursion to communicate and listen to owls, which was a fascinating event to say the least.
I love to hike and bike in the Brecksville Reservation as all as the nearby Cuyahoga Valley National Park.
To be ever so close (15 miles to downtown Cleveland) yet be in the midst of total green space is the best of both worlds.
These were just a few photos I happened to snap when I was traveling through the park system one day last week.
Here is a companion post with some other photos taken this past week of some downtown Brecksville scenes.
I also stopped by the Brecksville City Hall area and snapped a few photos of the baseball diamonds and tennis court areas.
I snapped a few photos of the Brecksville Community Center complex and playground area as well.
