The beautiful waterfall locally known as “Chair Factory Falls” is the natural feature now accessible by a pedestrian trail off of Lake Metroparks Greenway Corridor in Concord Township. Lake Metroparks recently installed this 0.3-mile trail to provide safe public access to view the falls, which were previously privately owned. The project was made possible by a donation of 4.5 acres of land.

Squire's Castle ~ Squire's Castle is a shell of a building located in the North Chagrin Reservation of the Cleveland Metroparks in Willoughby Hills, Ohio. It was built in the 1890s by Feargus B. Squire for use as the gatekeeper's house for his future country estate, which was never built. Squire, a founder of Standard Oil Company, bought the surrounding 525 acres of land but never completed the project. Squire sold the property in 1922 and the Cleveland Metroparks acquired it in 1925.
