The Oak Openings Preserve Beach Ridge Area is a large addition to the largest Metropark. It is home to two unique features in northwest Ohio: the Cannaley Treehouse Village and Beach Ridge Singletrack Trail.
The Cannaley Treehouse Village is unique in the nation, offering four overnight treehouses and three tent platforms. See the Treehouse Village Page
This mountain bike skills development course has 21 obstacles, including roller coaster, teeter-totter and snake ladder, to help cyclists prepare for the types of challenges they will confront on the singletrack and other mountain bike trails.
Located at the trailhead of the Beach Ridge Bike Trail inside Oak Openings, HEAVY Wheelhouse provides guests the opportunity to meet with friends and enjoy locally brewed HEAVY Beer Company beer and coffee drinks created by the team at Black Kite Coffee.
Hours of Operations are Thursday through Sunday from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m., closed Monday through Wednesday.
