Big Creek is the third largest tributary of the lower Cuyahoga River,
flowing 12 miles before joining the Cuyahoga at a point 7.4 miles
above the mouth of the river where it empties into Lake Erie in Cleveland.
The watershed drains 39 square miles from 7 municipalities
(Cleveland, Brooklyn, Linndale, Parma, Parma Heights,
Brook Park, and North Royalton).
It is the most severely urbanized watershed (52% impervious).
Fortunately, it also has one of the strongest stewardship groups in the
Cuyahoga River watershed - Friends of Big Creek.
