City Parks

City Park West/East
Beachwood City Park West includes 1.6 miles of trails, consisting of 8-foot wide hard surface multi-purpose trails allowing for bicycling, walking, running, and skating, 6-foot wide gravel trails for hiking, a sledding hill, two parking areas with 18 parking spaces each, and an open-air shelter with room for 40 to 50 people, including a unisex bathroom and a drinking fountain.

A wood staircase provides access from the upper level near the 70-foot slope sledding hill to the lower central area of the park, adjacent to the gravel trails.

Wood boardwalks cross wet areas along the trail and pedestrian entry points into the park are located at Richmond Road with new minor entry points across from Sulgrave Road on both East and West Shaker Boulevard. Crosswalks are located at the minor entry points. Landscaping focuses on screening new parking areas from surrounding neighborhoods and beautifying the park entry areas at Richmond Road.

Beachwood City Park East features one mile of paved trails, benches, and a parking area located on Shaker Boulevard. It is also the site of our Barkwood Dog Park!
