Description

 

The Village of Moreland Hills is home to some prized and pristine green space. Our parks range from U.S. President James A. Garfield’s cabin and birth site to the rolling hills of the 142-acre Forest Ridge Preserve and sections of the Cleveland Metroparks South Chagrin Reservation, all offering great opportunities to explore the outdoors. To assist the Village with park improvement and enhancements, the Moreland Hills Parks Commission invites you to join our fundraising efforts by participating in our annual “Head For The Hills!” event.  

Choose from a 5K road race through the heart of the Chagrin River valley, a 1.5-mile hike in beautiful Forest Ridge, or a "fun run/walk" for kids and families. Participants in the 5K and hike receive a special “Head For The Hills!” shirt, and everyone will be eligible for random giveaways from our sponsors.  

Your registration fee will grow our Parks Fund and will support future projects, such as completion of the community pavilion at Forest Ridge and improvements in signage and other enhancements at the Garfield cabin and birth site park.  Donations above the registration fee are very welcome too!  

Come out and enjoy the beauty of the Chagrin valley while helping us preserve and improve our fantastic parks!
