Toledo/Swanton Ohio: Oak Openings Preserve Metropark

Home Inspector with Home Inspector for ASPEC Residential Services, LLC

What a great place to spend a day, and best of all, it's FREE!  It's refreshing to get the family away from the daily hustles and bustles of life and go and do something fun together, that doesn't involve technology, conditioned air spaces, spending money, or sitting around.  Our kids had so much fun. From catching catipillars, to bird-watching (or squirrel-watching), & following the maps & trails.  The trails are all marked with color coded arrows, which really keeps the kids attention to get to the next arrow and knowing they're leading us the right way.  They also enjoyed playing in the sand on the sand dunes, crossing the bridges, and getting to play on the playground equipment at the end of the hike. If you live or are visiting Northwest Ohio, the Frederick Family suggests taking a day and "re-connect" with nature and spend a day enjoying it at Oak Openings Preserve Metropark in Swanton, Ohio.  Can't wait to go back in the fall!
