  3. Melinda Smith says

    Under Cuyahoga County, the village of Chagrin Falls is misspelled. You have an extra “r”. Happens frequently.

  4. T.W. says

    Both Oberlin and Wellington have summer concerts:) Also, have you heard of Preston’s Hope playground? I was wondering your opinion of it. Thanks!

    • Find Time for Fun says

      Thanks Again!

      I’ll get those added.

      Preston’s Hope playground is amazing. We were in that area about a month ago and stopped to check it out. Unfortunately it was too cold to play, but I got some great pictures. I’m playing to do a write up about it to let others know about it and what to expect. It’s huge and has a ton of options for kids. I’ll publish the write up the first week of June. For now, you can see some pictures on their website:
