Cleveland is on the verge of fulfilling a long-anticipated dream - finally providing access and connectivity to miles and miles of our riverfront and lakefront. From the Towpath and Lake Link trails to the upcoming groundbreaking of the planned downtown lakefront project, the new Lakefront Greenway and the redesigned Shoreway, neighborhood planners, developers, and others are helping Cleveland reconnect to its birthplace, where the Cuyahoga River meets Lake Erie. Join us for a lunchtime cookout on the banks of the Cuyahoga River to hear from a panel of people making this transformation possible.

Panelists include:

​William D. Friedman​, President and CEO, Port of Cleveland 

Richard Y. Pace, AIA, Cumberland Development, LLC

Brian Zimmerman, Chief Executive Officer, Cleveland Metroparks

Ann Zoller, Executive Director, LAND studio

This conversation will be moderated by WCPN Morning Edition host/producer Rick Jackson

Location: Merwin's Wharf

1785 Merwin Ave, Cleveland, OH 44113
