You have a lot of great possibilities at this park. Even the tour of the manor is fun. There us places to rent and places for free to picnic.

Yes! All the metroparks are free and fabulous! They have expanded rapidly in the last few years, adding parks I haven't even been to yet. You can get lots of info at metroparks toledo (all one word) period com. Enjoy!
