Wendy Park at Whiskey Island
Ohio's new Wendy Park
...on the shores of Lake Erie in downtown Cleveland

One of Northeast Ohio's best kept secrets!
Visit Cuyahoga County's newest attraction, Wendy Park at Whiskey Island.  Step into the bowls of Cleveland's industrial past, and into the "heart of it all", a richly under visited area of the city.

Wendy Park, named for the beloved daughter of Dan and Marge Moore who lost her life in a skiing accident, is beginning to take shape on Whiskey Island. Restoring the environment, celebrating our community's history, and providing a natural retreat in the heart of Cleveland are the goals for Wendy Park. Visitors will be able to visit a natural shoreline with direct access to the lake, walk on trails and enjoy stunning views of Lake Erie, the Flats, and the downtown skyline (particularly at night).



"Ed" Hauser Way dedication May 2009

Cleveland Mayor Jackson helps dedicate Hauser Way at Wendy Park


Ed Hauser

Ed Hauser was a visionary civic leader. He dedicated significant time, energy and money toward preserving Whiskey Island for the people of northeast Ohio. On behalf of the Board of County Commissioners, the Cuyahoga County Planning Commission is working with Ed’s family and friends to explore how to remember Ed at Whiskey Island and Wendy Park.

We hope that visitors to Whiskey Island & Wendy Park will be able to recall the story of Ed Hauser, his involvement in preserving green space and understand Ed’s brand of citizen activism, as well as why Whiskey Island & Wendy Park were so important to Ed.
