When summer in Northeast Ohio arrives, the steamy
temperatures often leave families in search of ways to
cool off.
Whether you’re seeking a full-day trip
or a quick dip, fast thrills to relaxing
chills, there are some great waterthemed activities — that are affordable
or free — close to home. While we can’t
cover them all, read on for some highlights to add to your family’s summer
itinerary.
Make a Splash
Get all the thrills of a waterpark without
the long drive and high admission price
by visiting Pioneer Waterland & Dry Fun
Park in Chardon, Clay’s Park in North
Lawrence or Water Works Family Fun
Center in Cuyahoga Falls.
Pioneer Waterland offers four sixstory high slides, swimming pool, Water
Cannon War Zone and a lazy river.
Situated around a 10-acre sand-bottom lake, Clay’s Park attractions include
two 150-foot Wet Willie slides, inflata-

bles and separate small children’s area.
Water Works Family Fun Center
boasts a variety of slides, from larger
enclosed tube and open body slides to a
lazy river, waterfalls and geysers.
Looking for some free water fun for
the kids?
Don’t overlook local splash pads,
including one at Crocker Park in Westlake. Splash Pad, presented by Lake
Ridge Academy, is open daily and offers
kids an opportunity to cool down while
burning off some energy. As an added
bonus, most evenings, the pad transforms into a light show.
“The Splash (Pad) is a really fun place
for parents to bring their kids, whether
they’re out shopping for the day and
want to make a quick stop, or they plan
to spend a few hours there,” says Lisa
Schwan, director of communications for
Stark Enterprises.

Watersports, Fast and Slow
Whether you’re more of the spectating
type or the kind who likes to jump in on
the action, watersport opportunities
abound in Northeast Ohio.
Check out Crooked River Adventures,
located in Kent, which offers canoe,
kayak and tube rentals for trips along
the Cuyahoga River to three destinations, all with easy-to-navigate routes
and beautiful views (don’t worry, return
transportation is provided). Additional

in Norton to watch a free weekly performance by the Chippewa Lake Water
Ski Show Team. Shows take place
Wednesday evenings from mid-June
through August.
“It’s show skiing that can’t be had anywhere else in Ohio,” says Tom Melter,
team president. “We are the only competitive water ski show team in the state
— and we’re comprised of families.”
options include a guided tour, or having
a bike delivered to the paddling destination to make the return trip.
The Cleveland Metroparks’ Hinckley
Lake Boathouse & Store rents canoes,
kayaks, rowboats, motorized rowboats,
stand-up paddleboards, paddleboats
and pontoons for use on the park’s 90acre lake. The facility also offers refreshments, fishing tackle and bait.
If you’d rather watch the water thrills
from the shore, head to Emerald Lake
Family Living At Its Best
Beaches, Great (Lakes) and Small
The shores of Lake Erie provide several
beaches from the east to the west. For
those a little farther south, sandy swim
areas are closer than you think.
For a magnificent view of Cleveland’s
skyline while you picnic and swim,
check out Edgewater Park, part of the
Cleveland Metroparks’ Lakefront Reservation, which was acquired by the parks
system last year. Edgewater offers a
900-foot swimming beach, playground,
pavilions and a nearby fishing pier.
“We’re proud to offer several very safe
areas for families to get out and enjoy
the water and summer weather,” says
Christy Szoke, Cleveland Metroparks’
aquatics facilities manager. “They’re
spread throughout Northeast Ohio so
they’re easy to get to for everyone. It’s
great for families, individuals, couples
and friends of all age groups.”
Go east and enjoy Lake Metroparks’
Fairport Harbor Lakefront Park. This
21-acre park features a beach with a
gradual slope and sandy bottom, according to Lake Metroparks’ website.
Visitors can also go kayaking, canoeing
and attend the special beach programs/festivals.
Families who don’t want to leave Fido
at home can use the designated “Dog
Swim Area,” which is located at the east
end of the beach.
Farther south, the 411-acre Portage
Lakes State Park, located in New
Franklin, offers visitors a variety of
water fun, including boating and fishing
on several lakes — Turkeyfoot Lake features a 900-foot public swimming
beach. The park also offers a dog park,
disc golf course, hiking trails and
several picnic areas to round out your
family’s day.
With summer around the corner, it’s
time to grab your towels and stock up
on sunscreen so your family will be
ready for these fun-in-the-sun
attractions.
