Our walking tours meet in Public Square in front of the statue of Mayor Tom Johnson. The statue is located on the north side (closest to the lake) of the square, in the middle. It is across the street from Old Stone Church.
There are multiple garages and surface lots in downtown Cleveland as well as some street parking. Each varies in price depending on the weekday, time of day and events going on downtown. Best Parking is a great website to use to compare parking prices for garages and surface lots. Please note, street parking is free on Saturdays, Sundays and major Holidays.
Returning to the Starting Point
Of course you can always walk back up Euclid Ave to return to Public Square from Playhouse Square. It is about a 10 – 15 minute walk depending on your pace. When running: Hop on the city’s free E-Line Trolley (Monday - Friday) along Euclid Ave and ride it back to Public Square. On the weekends the C-Line Trolley will take you back to Public Square although it is not as direct. The Downtown Public Art tour ends where it begins.
What to Wear
Face masks will no longer be required on our walking tours, outside or inside the buildings we currently visit. Please note, building policies could change and a mask may be required to enter a building, having one with you is suggested.
