“One of the better parks in this region”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

This park boasts many elements. It has history (old locks from the Erie Canal), environment, wildlife, bike trails, the Maumee River and a sledding hill. When the grandkids are in town this is one of the locations to which we head. We have made many memories there.

“Some History & Great Views”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

Park in the River Road lot for best access. The upper park, north of the road, features the canal locks and can be seen in a short time. South of River Road the park extends along the Maumee with miles of trails and great views, as well as pavilions and picnic areas. The park abounds with deer and birds. A great place for kids and dogs to expend their excess energy.

“Nice walk, pretty view”
Reviewed July 27, 2013

This metropark is set around a series of old lock channels. The park is not huge, and makes for a nice half hour stroll. There are restrooms on location that are clean, drinking fountains, and int eh winter they offer sledding and bon fires.

“Great place to brings kids and have a picnic!”
Reviewed July 16, 2013

We love that there are two sides to venture on. We also enjoy walking the paths on the west side that take you near the old canals. The playground on the east side is fantastic for the kids. Lots of fun walking in the Maumee river too, just make sure to wear old shoes!
