“Good luck getting any directions”
Reviewed June 17, 2013

The website describes things we did not find. We stopped at the offices of the preserve and no one there (four people) could direct us to a trail. Two workers told us to "follow the tire tracks" which proved to be a very unsatisfactory experience. One said there were trails but he didn't really know how to find them and we should "just go out that way" (into an open field). There was a sign in back of the office that described a trail but there was nothing apparent but tire tracks in overgrown grass that petered out after a thousand feet or so. We didn't have time to keep hunting.

“Best Park In The Area. Hands down”
Reviewed May 29, 2013 via mobile

I have been going to this park Since Reed Rd ran all the way through. I love that most of their trails are covered with mulch. It's beautiful, quiet, and filled with miles of trails to get lost in! This park will always be #1 in my heart.

“Just o.k. park”
Reviewed May 11, 2013

I have been to almost all of the Toledo Metroparks and I must say that Oak Openings is my least favorite. Almost all the trails(except for the bike trails) are sand and unpleasant to walk through. I would recommend a different park in the area( Such as Wildwood or Sidecut) Overall, not an awesome park.

My family and I have been to Oak Openings several times a year. There are miles and miles of trails for running and a beautiful pond for picnicking!
