When we first moved to town we found this gem. Tons of trails well marked, you can map out a walk of almost any length you wish. There are both dirt & paved trails which is nice with strollers. Some in the open/sun, but plenty in the cover of trees for those hot days. Beware it gets busy- we learned... More

When I first met my wife she was living in Ohio, near Wildwood. She had me go there with her on multiple occasions so we could explore this expansive place. It was already on of her favorite places to go, and it quickly became one of mine. The boardwalk path throughout the woods is awesome, a personal favorite. We took... More

We visited the first weekend in December and the programs were wonderful for the grandchildren! They got to make crafts that children in the early 20th century would have made. There were cookies and punch for everyone, and each child was given a gift of an old-fashioned toy!

We were passing through Toledo and decided to take a look at the Wildwood Preserve. Reached there around afternoon on Thursday, New Year's Day. Bad choice on all counts! The place was closed! And a sign displayedindicated that from January to March the Manor House is open only Sunday afternoons. The trails were of course open but it was cold... More

...to get some exercise. Varied choice of paved walks or trails through the woods. We enjoyed our walk there and will be back regularly this spring and summer.

This park has great walking trails and beautiful areas to sit and enjoy nature. The creekthat runs through the park is especially nice..... depending on the time of year it can be a trickle or a nice flowing creek. And the Manor House is a great place to tour especially in December when they are decorated for the holidays.
