Cuyahoga Valley National Park

Contact Info
15610 Vaughn Road
Brecksville, OH 44141



Though a short distance from the urban environments of Cleveland and Akron, Cuyahoga Valley National Park seems worlds away. The winding Cuyahoga - the "crooked river" as named by American Indians - gives way to deep forests, rolling hills, and open farmlands. The park is a refuge for flora and fauna, gives a sense of times past, and provides recreation and solitude for Ohio's residents and visitors.
