Metroparks Toledo is a system of parks and trails connecting people with nature in compelling and exciting ways. Wherever you are in Lucas County, you are just minutes away from a Metropark.
All Metroparks encompass beautiful scenery, open spaces and boast an open invitation to come and explore. Yet, no two Metroparks are alike. Every Metropark is different, and promises singular experiences and one-of-a-kind, natural attributes.
Metroparks provide a myriad of ways for people to connect with the natural world. What’s your pleasure? Biking? Hiking? Canoeing? Camping? Photography? There’s a Metropark for that—and no better place to come outside and play.
Metroparks not only conserves the most beautiful natural resources in the region, in many cases Metroparks restores them to their unaltered splendor. These are places that are meant for enjoyment. These are places people want to be.
Chances are, you’re only minutes from a Metropark. Consequently, you’re always just minutes from beautiful open spaces, and plenty of things to see and do the year round. Check this page often to discover everything happening at Metroparks.
Sometimes the best way to enjoy your Metroparks is to take an active role in helping support and sustain Metroparks in the future. What is your favorite way to get involved?
