Merwin's Wharf

Merwin's Wharf is one of my favorite go-to places in the Flats. 

Located on the Cuyahoga River’s Irishtown Bend, Merwin’s Wharf features stunning views of water and wildlife with nearby connections to recreational opportunities. Nestled in the post-industrial site of Cleveland’s Flats neighborhood, Merwin’s Wharf’s connects guests to urban greenspace while enjoying fresh, seasonal and locally-sourced menu items.

Larry Doby All-Star Playground Dedication

Originally constructed 22 years ago during the inaugural year of the Major League Baseball All-Star Legacy effort during the 1997 All-Star Week in Cleveland, the Larry Doby All-Star Playground has been renovated to include updated equipment and refurbished flooring.

Members of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Cleveland - King Kennedy Club and youth in the nearby community will be able to use the Playground as a daily recreational outlet. The ribbon cutting took place with Larry Doby Jr. and Cleveland Indians owner Paul Dolan among others in attendance.

I love the quote from Larry Doby Jr. who said "My Dad said he never got booed in Cleveland."
