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.

Beautiful park with shaded areas. The terrain of the paths are comfortable to walk on. Several different types of trails to pick from.

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.
