A World-Class Park System

A collection of special places.

More than six million times a year, people choose to spend time in a Metropark. People recognize that parks are special places to gather, to exercise, recreate and learn about nature.

Metroparks protect our community’s natural resources by using public dollars responsibly to conserve, preserve and restore areas that provide remarkable environmental and economic value for all of northwest Ohio. Parks and open space benefit the community by helping clean the air and water, retain stormwater, provide essential habitat for wildlife and enhance property values.

Metroparks Toledo was the recipient of the 2020 National Gold Medal Award for excellence in parks and recreation management, the most prestigious honor in the parks and recreation industry.
