Head west, then turn left onto Clague Rd. Keep an eye out for our practice coming up on your right. If you reach the Taco Bell, you’ve passed us!

Some Quick Local History

Rocky River might be a suburb of Cleveland, but its history goes back centuries. In the summer of 1764, British Colonel John Bradstreet embarked on a mission to address Pontiac’s Rebellion, leading a diverse force comprising over 2,000 soldiers, American volunteers, and Native Americans. While originally intended as a military operation, Bradstreet’s mission evolved to focus on prisoner retrieval, exploration, and peacemaking. 

As the expedition encountered treacherous conditions on Lake Erie, seeking refuge from a storm, the fleet of 60 boats and nine canoes faced significant challenges. Despite the adversity, Bradstreet and his men found shelter at what is now Bradstreet’s Landing Park in Rocky River on October 18, 1764. Following a brief stay, the expedition returned to Fort Niagara after enduring considerable hardships during their journey. Despite rumors, only one life was lost during the endeavor, highlighting the resilience and determination of those involved.

A Picturesque Local Park You Can’t Miss

Rocky River Park offers a charming escape for locals and visitors alike, boasting a picturesque setting on the shores of Lake Erie. With its sandy beach, shaded picnic areas, and stunning sunset views, it’s no wonder why this park is a favorite destination for families and individuals of all ages. The park features a playground for children to enjoy, along with park benches and swings overlooking the lake, providing the perfect spot to relax and take in the breathtaking scenery. 

While swimming is not permitted in the protected water area, it’s not uncommon to see people wading in the shallow, warm waters, especially during the summer months. Additionally, the park offers amenities such as grills, picnic tables, and a pavilion, although they may be in high demand during peak times. With accessible bathrooms and ample parking, Rocky River Park offers a delightful retreat for anyone looking to unwind and connect with nature by the lake.
