Whiskey Island, Wendy Park

Whiskey Island, named after a distillery built on the land in the 1830s, is located immediately west of where the Cuyahoga River empties into Lake Erie. It is the only public park in Cuyahoga County that provides direct access to Lake Erie and the Cuyahoga River. Wendy Park and the Whiskey Island Marina are interal parts of Whiskey Island. Wendy Park is named in memory of Wendy Moore, a native Clevelander who was captivated by the wild, rugged beauty of the Whiskey Island shoreline. She loved the island and hoped that one day the beauty she found there would be preserved for everyone to enjoy. Today, visitors can enjoy stunning views of Lake Erie and downtown Cleveland, take long walks along the beach, play sand volleyball, and listen to live music including Rock, Reggae and Blues. Leashed dogs are also welcome to enjoy the island vibes with their owners.


Whiskey Island Marina, directly located on Lake Erie only 5 minutes from Downtown Cleveland, offers premiere lakefront dockage, no bridges/no waiting, and is protected by two breakwalls. The marina offers spectacular Lake Erie and downtown skyline views. For information about dock space call: 216-272-0750.
