Cleveland has one of the largest Metropark systems in the entire country and Solon is fortunate to have a branch of this system located within our borders. Although many people who live here don’t realize it, we actually have a one of the area’s best parks here in Solon OH, the South Chagrin Reservation.

Starting at Richmond Road and going East through to the Solon/Bentleyville border, the South Chagrin Reservation is the largest park in Solon OH and offers a plethora of outdoor activities for young and old. For those who enjoy vigorous exercise, there is a 7 mi. paved trail that is perfect for walking, biking and roller blading. The park is also perfect for more relaxing activities such as walking a dog or pushing a stroller. Motorized vehicles are prohibited.

Additional items of interest are a 15 mile bridle trail, picnic areas, and 3 acres of fishing. The stocked lake has been know to contain large-mouth bass, bluegill, and catfish. Special fishing requirements are posted near the lake.  

Some of the trails in the park are easy, yet others are a little more challenging. The South Chagrin Reservation also allows visitors to see some of the local birds and trees, and offers some of the best foliage and some great views in the fall.

Although not officially located in Solon, there is a popular sledding hill located on the corner of Sulphur Springs Drive and Chagrin River Road.  The nice thing about this hill is there is a rope leading up which makes it easier to climb, especially when carrying a sled. There is usually plenty of parking as well.

The park is actually a fairly quiet place to just get away as well. It is not uncommon to find local business people strolling the park during their lunch hour or taking some time off during the day for a quick jog.
