Toledo has a number of excellent Metro Parks, but Wildwood is the best of them all. Lots of great walking trails, a covered bridge, an elevated lookout, manor house, picnic areas, plenty of room for children to play and lots of wildlife. A jewel in Toledo's crown!

Wildwood has everything. If you want to hike on paved paths, they have it! If you want to hike in the woods on rugged paths they have it. They have pavilions for parties or picnics and great playgrounds. It's a great, large park. It's my favorite park.

I love to walk in this park. If the Manor house is doing tours, go on one, it takes you back into a different time. The Stable house has a wonderful bird watching area, and really fat squirrels! Check out the bathrooms too, they are the most adorable bathrooms I've every seen. Christmas time is the best time to tour... More

Went here for a grad party. Excellent trails and scenery. The buildings in the park are very neat as well. This park definitely seems more useful as an event park rather than a hiking park. However, the hiking trail we followed was still fairly long and very scenic.

The best of Toledo's metro parks. Great for walking, running, dogs, and you may see some deer. Easy to get to. Sometimes in the fall there should be more parking.
