Have you seen the Toledo Metroparks’ new logo? It was unveiled through this beautiful and thought provoking video.

As northwest Ohioans, we are truly blessed to have these lush green spaces. Few other cities of our size in the Midwest boast such an amazing park system.

Get out and explore the parks like a nature expert! We have a variety of books that can help you identify local foliage and wildlife, Metroparks Explorer Bags for children, and a mutli-location birding program for adults.
