Holden Arboretum
9500 Sperry Road

A variety of beautiful gardens winding through lush greenery, a large pond, wildlife viewing areas, and more can further be enjoyed through the “Listen & Learn” program; signs on the grounds provide the cell numbers to call. This 3,500 acre park is also home to an amazing G-gauge train garden railroad that travels more than 2000 linear feet of tract over replicas of Cleveland’s landmark bridges, 10 of Ashtabula’s historic covered bridges, the historic barns of Holden, and more. Well mannered dogs are welcome on leash. They must also be picked up after; mutt mitts can be found along the trails.
