Hear Here! Audio Tours
June 15 - December 31, 2012
Cleveland Metroparks Hinckley Reservation is yours to discover when you take part in Hear Here! - An Audio Tour of Cleveland Metroparks!
This fun-filled adventure for all ages will take you on a self-led tour of the historical sites in Cleveland Metroparks Hinckley Reservation. Just hop in the car, and get ready to tune your radio to 1620 AM at each Hear Here! site for a unique tour of five gems of the "Emerald Necklace."
You can hear interesting stories about how Hinckley Lake was formed, why the buzzards always return to the famed Buzzard Roost, what Noble Stuart did to make Worden Heritage Homestead and Worden's Ledges so unique and learn about Mr. Johnson of Johnson’s Picnic Area and learn about Whipp’s Ledges.
The Hear Here! tour is great for all ages and allows you the flexibility of experiencing the tour all in one day or by making different stops on different days. At each stop on the tour, you can pull your car into a parking space, turn off the engine, and tune into 1620 AM to listen for fun facts and interesting stories.
The broadcast may be in progress. But the message repeats itself and can be listened to more than once to ensure all the fascinating details about the site and its surroundings are covered.
To experience the wonders of the five sites even more, you are encouraged to get out and explore by hiking, picnicking or just relaxing at the site.
