Much sandstone was quarried here long ago when Cleveland was changing from a frontier town into a major mid-western city, as it was a major source of stone blocks. The cliffs and ledges are steep and dangerous, as nearly every year some careless park visitor manages to fall the 100 + feet to the bottom, discovering the harsh effect of gravity on the human body.
