Cuyahoga, or crooked river in Mohawk, revolves around a river that spans from Cleveland to Akron. The Cuyahoga is the only national park in the state of Ohio, thanks to Hayward Kendall’s 430-acre donation of land to the state of Ohio back in the 1930s. He named the park after his mother, Virginia Kendall. In 1974, the residents feared the land would be taken over and the beauty lost, so then President Gerald Ford deemed it a national recreation area, thus saving the land. In 1985, the National Park Services added 47 acres of wetlands. Now, this park attracts thousands of visitors every year for getaways unlike any other. Whether it be hiking, biking, bird watching, camping, rafting, canoeing, kayaking, or cave exploring, this beautiful land provides recreation for all.
