STRONGSVILLE, OH (WOIO) - The Cleveland Metroparks’ toboggan chutes open on Friday, and no snow is necessary!

Reservations are required for the season and are open for the weekend through Nov. 27.

Riders must wear gloves and be 42 inches or taller, according to Cleveland Metroparks.

The Strongsville toboggan chutes are located at the Mill Stream Run Reservation at 16200 Valley Parkway in Strongsville.
