“Oh it were sweet to think… that May should be ours again…”
“In May” – Poem by Paul Lawrence Dunbar (1913)
At 750 E 88th Street, on a parcel of land– a section of the 270 acres donated to the City of Cleveland by oil tycoon and philanthropist, John D. Rockefeller– the City’s Rockefeller Park Greenhouse in all of it’s splendor. Completed in 1905, the greenhouse has been free and open to the public year-round throughout the decades. Visitors to the park enjoy lush indoor and outdoor gardens of many varieties. A quiet and colorful place to spend a lunch hour on a warm day in the month of May.
