The 493-acre park is bisected by the Ottawa River and has sandy soil indicative of the rare Oak Openings Region. The prairie community at Wildwood is home to many diverse and fascinating plants and animals. In the spring, it is a breeding site for ground-nesting birds such as rufous-sided towhees, field sparrows and American woodcock. Summer brings a spectacular display of prairie wildflowers and grasses, such as rough blazing star, big bluestem and Indian grasses, some reaching 10 feet high.

A very nice park, perhaps a little too nice. It's been said that Wildwood is a victim of its own success. It is so nice that it's overused. If you're looking for some peace and quiet or solitude, this is not the place for you. If you don't mind company, this is certainly one of the best Metroparks.

A few nice gentle hills in a flat city.

Great park that is open from sunset to sunrise. Lots of different trials. I've walked a total of nine miles one day and still didn't see them all! Lots of wildlife like deer. Rest spots and great areas for stretching.

I hiked about 6 miles here by taking the different connected trails (and some of the side loops). Decent amount of people out, but it was Labor Day. Only took about an 1hr and 45 minutes.

This is a nice Metropark. There's a variety of trails ranging from less than a mile to 3 miles. Good place to take your dog and there's nice open areas and jungle gyms as well. Parking can be difficult on weekends.

The Toledo Metroparks in general are amazing, but Wildwood is probably my favorite. I grew up in Toledo, and my family spent many years going to Wildwood and spending time outside and walking the trails. The boardwalk trails are very cool, and the stream views are gorgeous. It's very quiet, and you totally forget that you're right in the heart of Toledo. Definitely a must-see for any Toledo-bound enthusiasts.

I agree with the others. In the Spring and Summer it can be busy. It's great in the Fall with all the leaves changing, and a great place to cross country ski or hike in the winter. LOVE IT!!!! Plus there are quite a few trails to choose from.

It can get crowded, but there are a few side trails that see lighter use.

One of the most popular Metroparks in Toledo. It can get busy but there are many trail options so it's easy to get away from the crowds.
