Gardens

The Cultural Gardens are located within the City of Cleveland’s Rockefeller Park. The oldest and largest Gardens are along East Blvd. from St. Clair Avenue on the north to Superior Avenue on the south. The later Gardens, and the newest, are along Martin Luther King, Jr. Blvd and start just north of St. Clair and continue to Superior Avenue at the southern end. An exception is the Chinese Garden that is also along MLK Jr. Blvd but located half way between Chester Avenue and East 105th, across from the Cleveland Museum of Art’s Wade Park Lagoon.

The Gardens extend roughly 1.5 mils on both MLK and East Blvds, so a complete walk around the Gardens would be 3 miles in length. Driving to the Gardens can be done by exiting I-90/Rt 2 at the MLK Jr. Blvd exit and proceed south along MLK Jr. Blvd. East Blvd is one block east of MLK Jr. Blvd. There are four (4) access roads leading east and up to East Blvd. along MLK Jr. Blvd. Alternatively, MLK Jr.Blvd. intersects with many streets south of Rockefeller Park. Major nearby streets in University Circle are Chester Avenue and Euclid Avenue, to name but a few.
