Roll and Stroll: The Warrensville Center Road
Multipurpose Path is Open
The Warrensville Center Road Multipurpose Path is officially open, providing walkers
and cyclists a safe, leisurely option to travel an often traffic-heavy section of this
Completed in June, the 10-foot wide path stretches nearly one mile, from the
southern City limit (just south of Scottsdale Boulevard) through the Van Aken
District to Farnsleigh Road, and continues on the north side of Farnsleigh to
Thornton Park. The project took nearly a year to complete.
Most of the $2.4 million project was funded by grants from the Northeast Ohio
Areawide Coordinating Agency and the State of Ohio. “This investment builds upon
the $18 million reconfiguration of Chagrin Boulevard and Warrensville, completed in
2016,” says City Planning Director Joyce Braverman.
Amenities include landscaping, lighting, and benches. The path serves as a
throughway connecting major businesses in the area, including the University
Hospitals Management Services Center, the Tower East office building, and the
Shaker Heights post office.
“The purpose of the path is to make connections,” says Braverman. “This project
really changes the experience of walking on Warrensville Center Road, which is
automobile dominated. It creates a new front door leading to the Van Aken District.”
Along the path there is a public art installation, Sidechairs, located on the corner
of Warrensville Center and Farnsleigh and consisting of a group of orange chairs. The
installation, created by artists Julia Jamrozik and Coryn Kempster, is a collaboration
between the City and the Public Art Task Force and is the latest of four similar chair
installments in the area, all arranged in varied configurations. The others are on
Chagrin, Farnsleigh, and at the RTA station in the Van Aken District.
This is the second multipurpose path located within the Van Aken District. The
Farnsleigh path was completed in 2019. The Warrensville Center project brings the
total number of multipurpose paths in the City to eight.
