Climb, ride, glide & play!

Geauga Park District is excited to reopen its “ropes & boats” recreational offerings.

New this year, Claridon Woodlands’ ropes course is now offering less-rushed adventures with slightly larger groups and more time on the course, featuring platforms 32 feet off the ground, linked by eight 23-to-32-foot-long challenge elements, and an exciting 100-foot-long zipline exit!

This season, high ropes will be open for hour-and-a-half-long sessions Saturdays and Sundays at 10:30 am, noon, 2:30 and 4 pm; and Mondays, Thursdays and Fridays at 12:30, 2, 4:30, and 6 pm.  Access is free to all Geauga County residents (ID required) and $20 for out-of-county residents (credit card only, paid on site).  To make a reservation (highly recommended), check availability, learn age requirements and weight restrictions, and more, be sure to read the info posted at ahead of time.

Those craving a warm-weather adventure on the water need look no further than Headwaters Park’s boathouse: your hub for kayak and canoe borrowing on a first-come, first-served basis. 

This season, the park’s limited number of kayaks, canoes and paddleboats will be available to borrow Saturdays and Sundays from 10 am to 5 pm, with last boats out at 4pm; and Mondays, Thursdays and Fridays from noon to 7 pm, with
last boats out at 6 pm.

Geauga County residents can borrow boats for free (ID required); out-of-county residents must pay $5 per hour for adults, $3 per hour for kids 12 and under, $8 for tandem, and $16 for paddleboats (credit card only, paid onsite).  Provided life vests must be worn at all times.
