Outstanding jewel in Toledo that everyone should experience. The Botanical Garden will have you coming back do to the changing exhibits. The garden is a great place to walk meditate or just enjoy looking at the plant life.

Great place for a run or a walk. Very well marked trails of various lengths to choose from. Also bring your furry friend to join the walk, there is a good chance to view a deer or two.

The current exhibit of stone sculptures from Zimbabwe is beautiful. Not many days left to catch this exhibit of over a hundred graceful sculptures. So glad I had the opportunity to see this.

Many beautiful gardens. Not a large park so you can go thru it in an hour or two. No pets allowed. Enjoy.

Hello. I'm not sure, and I'm out of the country, so I can't call. Call my husband (Billy 614-570-1904) He goes by there every day and he'll find it quickly.
