Rockefeller Park in Cleveland is home to the Cleveland Cultural Gardens.  28 nationalities (or so) have gardens.  It's one of the best kept and cool underground entities in the Cleveland area.

One of the striking observations about all of these gardens is how many of them have fountains... that work!

Many, like the Slovenian, have statues or the remembrance of statues that once stood.  Not that the gardens are run down by any means...  If anything, they suffer from a lack of people visiting them.

  walking downhill What's fun is to park your car on East 72nd street and walk/hike the area.  You can bike there also, but walking will give you the best opportunity for exploration of the many nooks and crannies that abound.

Exploring the gardens is somewhat like an architectural hunt. You'll uncover many treasures long forgotten. Paths that few tack, steps leading to mysterious things, and a bit of vandalism that has occurred to some.
