This is the most expansive park in the Toledo, Ohio area hands down. There is roughly 15 miles of hiking trails available along with biking trails as well. Great for day hikes or camping as there is onsite camp sites available for a small fee. Many folks bring their dogs for a nice day walk or kayak/canoe or just to... More

This is a go to spot for my family and I. We enjoy the Wabash trail for biking and roller blading or we head to trails in Oak Openings for a short hike. Lots of trails to pick from. You could hike all day here if you wanted to.

This park has many trails to suit you needs. It has a nice fishing pond (Mallard Lake) for the children. Deer run throughout the park. Plenty of frogs, snakes, turtles, etc. they also have a nice nature center and observation room. The have campfire areas and sheltered areas. The have grills for grilling but bring your charcoal. Very nice park.

the MetroPark is excellent for walking & hiking. A variety of trail types offer views of deer, waterfowl, numerous bird species and other woodland creatures. I rate this place highly because of the varied views and activities. Great place to take the family for a picnic or in the winter visit Mallard Lake for ice skating.

Oak Openings is our favorite local park for a long day hike (good prep for a long backpacking trip) and trail running.

Oak Openings is a fantastic Metro Park. If you have horses you can go horseback riding in the park or in the Maumee State Forest right across the road. There are many trails to walk or ride a bike. It is a beautiful place all year round but especially in the Autumn. If you want a peaceful day of natural... More

I love the deer and to be able to be with them as I ride. It seems,... More

My wife and I love to take our kids here every year to go hiking. This is a great place to show our kids how much fun it can be to just go out and enjoy nature.

The habitat was here was so different from home! I loved how many Red-headed Woodpeckers were around and the Lark Sparrows were gorgeous. The staff were wonderful and friendly. I just wish the center had been open.
