Adventure and fitness make the outdoors great.
For so many of us, outdoor recreation is the pathway to nature. No matter the time of year, there are always plenty of reasons to enjoy the great outdoors.
Metroparks provide epic settings for a wide range of recreation and fitness pursuits.
Several Metroparks provide opportunities for traditional fitness activities like hiking, running and biking or playing a ballgame. Others accommodate traditional excursions for outdoor enthusiasts like kayaking, canoeing, hunting and fishing. Oak Openings Preserve is part of a region by the same name renown for world-class birding. The newest Metropark, Westwards, features an archery park.
The recreational outlets for the people of Toledo and the authentic experiences they afford are boundless. These are not only ideal activities for connecting with nature and connecting with one another, but promoting general health and wellbeing.
With the development of Middlegrounds, Metroparks will deliver outdoor recreation to the heart of downtown Toledo.
