Cleveland Cultural Gardens

The Cleveland Cultural Gardens are a treasure covering 1.5 miles in University Circle's Rockefeller Park. The Gardens were created as a lasting tribute to peace, harmony and mutual understanding.

They have been the site of countless parades, weddings, musicals, dances and celebrations, and have hosted dignitaries from around the world. A renewed interest in their continued vitality has led to establishment of new gardens and revitalization of others in recent years.

The visionary behind the gardens was Leo Weidenthal, an editor of the Jewish Independent.

You really should visit the Gardens in person. The lower level is on MLK between the freeway and Superior and the upper level is on East Boulevard between Superior and St. Clair.
