CLEVELAND HEIGHTS, Ohio — As News 5 viewers know, the Cleveland area is filled with Hidden Gems. We shared100 of them with you last year. Tucked within our neighborhoods are even more of those gems – the people, experiences, and places that aren’t necessarily on any TripAdvisor lists but make every community worth visiting. In this series, we’re exploring the Hidden Gems found within our neighborhoods, and we’re heading to Cleveland Heights, a city that’s more than just tree-lined residential streets lined with Colonial and Tudor homes.

It is also home to a three-day arts festival every summer that features local artists. The park is named after Frank C. Cain, who served as mayor of Cleveland Heights for 32 years.
