Cannaley Treehouse Village

Taking a nature experience to new heights.

A Treehouse Village at Oak Openings Preserve will provide Metroparks visitors new, memorable experiences that connect people with nature. With help from Nelson Treehouse and Supply, of the TV show “Treehouse Masters,” the Cannaley Treehouse Village will feature:

  •      A six-person treehouse
  •      A four-person treehouse
  •      Two, 2-person treehouses
  •      Three tent/hammock platforms for camping in the trees
  •      A common treehouse with seating for up to 49 people
  •      A crow's nest
  •      And a canopy walk linking the common treehouse to the crow's nest

The four private treehouses and tent platforms will be available to rent for overnight stays beginning in 2020, while the common treehouse will be reservable for group gatherings.

Creating a Destination

When paired with a new, 12-mile singletrack mountain bike trail, the 500-acre Beach Ridge Area of Oak Openings will become a destination for both local and out-of-town visitors. The addition of the Treehouse Village will create excitement for an even broader audience, adding to our region’s growing reputation as an outdoors-lover’s paradise.

A One-of-a-Kind Experience in Nature
The goal of the Treehouse Village is to provide a compelling new way for people to connect with the outdoors. Now under construction, the Cannaley Treehouse Village will offer accommodations unique among public park systems.

Open to the Public
In addition to the Treehouse Village being a reservable overnight destination, Metroparks will host regular public events and programming in the Village to give the community access to this unique location.

Responsible Development

The Treehouse Village is in large part a result of the generous support of the local community through the Metroparks Toledo Foundation.

Private contributions made to the Foundation will fund the development of the Treehouse Village. Metroparks financial plan provides for the expected operations costs, which will be covered by revenue from rental fees.

Metroparks Toledo has established a local team of experts to complete the design and construction of the Treehouse Village. The team will help ensure that the community project is completed responsibly and is cost effective.
