Cleveland History Center
Take a Hike Extended Season
Saturdays, October 6 – December 8, 2018
Meet at 10:00 a.m. at the Wade Oval Information Center (10820 East Blvd)
The Take a Hike extended season will feature our University Circle tour, which launched this spring! Each tour lasts approximately 90 minutes and features actors and actresses portraying historic figures from Cleveland’s past.
Take A Hike to learn the past, present and future of historic, picturesque University Circle. Explore Wade Park, the green heart of Cleveland’s cultural district, and Uptown, its vibrant commercial center along Euclid Avenue. Meet Adella Prentiss Hughes and learn about the founding of The Cleveland Orchestra and the creation of its home at Severance Hall. See firsthand how classic meets contemporary in this dynamic neighborhood with over $4 billion of recent developments.
University Circle is easily accessible by public transit and bike. Look for the flower shaped bike racks in front of the Cleveland Botanical Garden. If you don’t have a bike, consider bike share through UHBikes. The nearest UHBikes station is on Wade Oval in front of the Cleveland Museum of Art. Street parking is available along Wade Oval Drive, East Blvd and Magnolia Drive. The Cleveland Museum of Art, Cleveland Botanical Garden, Cleveland Museum of Natural History and Cleveland History Center all have parking garages nearby.
