Metroparks Pod


The Metroparks Pod is the insiders podcast about the outdoors in your Metroparks.

The purpose is to connect you with what’s happening in the park system and the people who are keeping them clean, safe, natural and active for more than 6 million visitors a year.


We answer your questions by asking our experts (or have fun trying). Tune in and count the number of ums..and ands, but first and foremost, enjoy! The Metroparks Pod, produced by Metroparks Toledo staff, is a bi-monthly show about your Metroparks.


New episodes every other Thursday.
