Cuyahoga River Restoration

(Cuyahoga River Community Planning)

Restoring, revitalizing and protecting the Cuyahoga River watershed

EUCLID CREEK gathers it waters from 24 square miles over nine municipalities (Beachwood, Lyndhurst, South Euclid, Euclid, Cleveland, Highland Heights, Richmond Heights, Mayfield Heights, Willoughby Hills and the Village of Mayfield) and empties into Lake Erie on the northeastern edge of the City of Cleveland.

Although it is not a tributary of the Cuyahoga River, Euclid Creek is within the RAP Area of Concern due to the existence of impairments to beneficial uses. Like many tributaries of the Cuyahoga River, its outer branches and headwaters lie in less urbanized areas than its main branch and lower portion. From South Euclid north to Richmond Heights, the creek is the centerpiece of the Cleveland Metroparks Euclid Creek Reservation. At its outflow to Lake Erie it runs through Wildwood Park.

The Friends of Euclid Creek watershed organization engages the public in stewardship, and "speaks for the creek." Staff is provided by the Cuyahoga Soil & Water Conservation District.
