Toledo Parks

See what makes outdoor life in Toledo so wild and wonderful. Whether you’re a devoted naturalist or just enjoy shooting hoops at a local park, there are plenty of great ways to get out and play.

The Toledo area is dotted with beautiful metroparks and nature preserves offering boundless recreation no matter the season. Pitch your tent at the Stony Ridge campground, just minutes from sparkling Maumee River  waters stocked with walleye and bass. Plan a cross-country skiing tour on the immaculate trails of the Oak Openings Preserve. Enjoy a wintry day of sledding, snow tubing and skating on Silver Lake. Once the snow melts away, lose yourself in the vibrant beauty of the spring wildflowers or paddle your kayak out to the Missionary Island wildlife area.
