It’s Executive Arrangements’ 40th anniversary, and we’re blogging about 40 of our favorite places in Northeast Ohio. The Emerald Necklace Marina is 32nd on our list.
I am coming to you from one of my favorite places in Cuyahoga county: the Emerald Necklace Marina on the Rocky River. If you haven’t been here, it’s located at the northernmost point of the Rocky River in the Rocky River Reservation.
There’s a cafe, which has a patio overlooking the river. There’s also a little bait shop and ice cream places as well as paddleboard and kayak rentals.
The Rocky River is the perfect location if you want to get down to Edgewater Park (to the east) or Bay Village Cove just a few minutes to the west.
My family has spent a lot of time on this river; my favorite activity is stand-up paddleboarding. Over the last few years, the river has been taken over by kayaks, paddleboarders, and weekend warriors that just love the water.
So if you’re biking in the MetroParks and need a break or your children want some ice cream or you want to fish in the quiet waters of the Rocky River, come down and join all the fun that goes on by the water at the Emerald Necklace Marina.
