Wildwood Preserve Metropark Reviews
Toledo's MetroPark System is unique and treasured. The Wildwood Preserve Metropark is probably the crown jewel of the System. Oak Openings would also be highly ranked in the System. more »
Always something to do here from eating a picnic, playing Frisbee, riding bikes, walking the trails or letting the kids play on the playground. more »
My kids and I really like this park. Places to walk and a huge play ground with lots of things to climb on and use the imagination. Every time we go people are around and we feel safe
This place is apart of my childhood as well as my hometowns history. It has trails for every type of hiker as well as lavish grounds for weddings or events. The manor house is a historical sight and can be toured. Lots of mom groups live the park on the grounds as well for their little ones.
