Wade Lagoon University Circle

Today’s Photo: Wade Lagoon University Circle

The lagoon is located on the south end of Wade Park, in front of the Cleveland Museum of Art. Yes, it’s in Cleveland not Washington D.C. or Paris. This beautiful piece of land was donated to the city by Jeptha Wade in 1882 with the intention of building an Art Museum. The statue located in foreground of the photo is the 1928 Night Passing the Earth to Day by Frank Jirouch. If you ever have an afternoon free and want somewhere to relax this place is perfect. Walk along the lagoon, eat lunch under a tree and then take a stroll through the art museum. It is a wonderful place that is rarely crowded and always free.

“Knowledge will forever govern ignorance; and a people who mean to be their own governors must arm themselves with the power which knowledge gives.” – James Madison
