The final portion, and the missing link to connecting the Cleveland Foundation Centennial Trail and the 100-mile-long Towpath Trail to the lakefront, is part of the larger Irishtown Bend project. LAND studio continues work with various public and non-profit partners to ensure that the Irishtown Bend phase is coordinated with the overall hillside stabilization and greenspace planning.
The completion of this project, more than 10 years in the making, will mean enhanced lakefront access for thousands of residents of and visitors to Northeast Ohio. These trails will be used for both transportation and recreation by individuals throughout the region, and will be most accessible to nearby residents of downtown, Ohio City, Detroit Shoreway, and Tremont, including the residents of the Cleveland Metropolitan Housing Authority’s Lakeview Terrace and Riverview Tower properties.
The Cleveland Foundation Centennial Lake Link Trail is managed by the Cleveland Metroparks.
