Take a Hike: Canal Basin Park in the Flats

The Historic Gateway Neighborhood Corporation offers free, guided walking tours of five distinct neighborhoods in downtown Cleveland. These award-winning tours feature actors and actresses portraying historic figures from Cleveland's past, and last about 1½ hours.


Here is the description of today's hike:

'Enjoy tales from the early days of Cleveland while learning about Moses Cleaveland, the Cuyahoga River, bridges, the historic B&O Rail Station and plans for a 25-acre park and the extension of the Towpath Trail.'

Settler's Landing is the brick patio at the intersection of Superior Avenue and Robert Lockwood Jr. Drive.

Take Superior Avenue down the hill into the Flats (Eastern Bank), and where it dead ends is where the tour begins.
Suggested street parking is located along Superior Avenue between West 6th and West 9th or along West 9th or West 10th Streets. Simply walk down the hill to the meeting point.











Following the tour, we might decide on a nearby place to have lunch and discuss what we learned on the tour.


One suggestion would be 1890 at the Arcade, a few blocks east.

    As always, they put on a great tour! I would have enjoyed the day more if I hadn't overbooked myself.. but it was a lesson learned.

    This will be a good outing. I have done it and "the take a hike" guys that lead it were very good and fun! We should try the Saturday one also before they are done in about a month!

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
