How do you envision Toledo’s tomorrow?

Imagine a thriving, vibrant downtown with 300 acres of new and revitalized riverfront greenspace connected by five miles of multi-use trails spanning both sides of the Maumee River from Veteran’s Glass City Skyway to the Anthony Wayne Bridge.

A transformed riverfront that enhances our quality of life and attracts talent and business. A place for our community to connect with trails and green space reaching East Toledo, the Vistula neighborhood and the Warehouse and Central districts. A waterfront that improves water quality by restoring natural areas, creating wetlands and planting thousands of trees. A downtown with continued economic growth created by increasing property values and establishing new businesses.

The Vision

Metroparks' plan is to invest in public spaces where our residents can gather to build life-long connections to each other and nature. More than 5 miles of new mixed-use trails and paths will connect communities on both sides of the river. So that you know when you’re here, you’re safe, you’re connected to community, and you belong.
