Metroparks Extended Hours
Experience your Metroparks in a new light literally! You asked and we delivered. Metroparks Extended Hours are just what the name implies we are open later so you can enjoy the parks after dark. Headlamps or flashlights strongly encouraged. Bikers are required to provide a front white light and red rear light. Hiking or biking buddies are also strongly encouraged, so bring a friend! Please continue to follow social distancing guidelines and use a mask while near other people and in restrooms. This area will be open regardless of the weather.
