On Tuesday after work I decided to go for a walk in the neighborhood and did 4 miles there and in Side-Cut too. I saw 32 deer on the first mile of the tow-path and 4 more later. It was unseasonably warm, so I had a great walk. I finished at dusk.

This is a wonderful park with awesome terrain and views. You will never come to this park and not see deer. Short and long trails. Mostly flat and easy to walk.

Several walking trails will take you to different areas of interest. Walk along the Miami and Erie canal, walk out to Fallen Timbets battlefield, or stroll along the Maumee river. Lots of wildlife to see. A nice picnic place and a great playground for kids. Also see 3 remaining canal locks.

Beautiful landscape, lots of interesting things to look at a perfect place for a hike. Took both dogs there and was able to get through a good 3+ mile walk. I love the water falls and features. Definitely worth the trip

The side cut Metropark is a great place for jogging and other outdoor activities. I haven't find a better one near Maumee. The facilities for barbecue or picnic look also good.

Good metropark with trails and other outdoor pursuits you would expect of a metropark. They have historical canals and ties to the battle of fallen timbers. see Fallen Timbers National Battlefield Park.

There's no place like it in the area! With a variety of paths and approaches to the Maumee River, every visit is a delight!
