Very nice park to take the kids to and do some biking. Great trails and nicely laid out. Good place for a picnic and just a day of relaxation. Nice shady areas. Usually pretty crowded, but plenty of space to share with others!!!

Every year local service clubs vie to get a room in the mansion to decorate. It is available to tour for free for one week, usually the from the first weekend in December thru the second weekend. Don't miss this!

My sister and I took the tour of the manor house. It was very interesting to hear the story of the Stranahan family (Champion Spark Plugs). Amazing house and lovely park.

If you are in the Toledo area around Christmas, do not miss the Manor House in all it's Christmas decor! They do a fabulous job decorating every room in the Manor House. Don't miss this!
