In the fall of 2015 Lakewood Park open the Solstice Steps, a grand and sturdy walkable concrete staircase nestled in the hillside that overlooks Lake Erie. These stairs are long enough to hug more than half the hillside, rise up in a set of 5 tiers, each tier containing 4 steps 3 feet wide and are a smooth, matte grey perfect for reflecting the setting sun. The Solstice Steps are serene haven for those looking to gather a peaceful moment through meditation and relaxation.
