History from the region’s rich past is brought to life at three sites that together make up one extraordinary Metropark.
From the street, the connection between Fallen Timbers Battlefield, Fallen Timbers Monument and Fort Miamis are not obvious, but all three sites are forever, indelibly connected. Each site is reminiscent of a substantial turning point in our nation’s history. The Fallen Timbers Battlefield and Fort Miamis National Historic Site is an Affiliated Unit of the National Park Service, owned and managed by Metroparks Toledo.
These parks sit on lands that were ancestral homes to Native American Tribes such as the Ojibwe (Chippewa), Odawa (Ottawa) Potawatomi, Lenapi (Delaware), Shawnee, Myaami (Miami), Wyandot (Huron), Mingo and the Wabash Nations which consisted of Peoria, Wea, Kickapoo and Piankashaws Nations. Metroparks Toledo embraces the Native Nations traditions of environmental stewardship as a critical part of the park system’s conservation mission.
