A united community with a strong regional presence.

Through 90 years of land stewardship, Metroparks has seen that people care for their environment if they positively interact with it. The success and vitality of our community depends on understanding that if we take care of the environment, it will take care of us.

This is a community effort. The project has already secured $13 million to complete the first phase—the first 30 acres. It will take the combined effort of the private and public sectors to ensure that we make the most of the city’s forward movement to transform our future. Together, we can accomplish this vision of a united community that has a strong regional presence.
