“home to many diverse & fascinating plants & animals”
Wildwood is the former family estate of a local automotive executive. Metroparks purchased the estate grounds, including the family home, in the 1970s. The prairie community at Wildwood is home to many diverse and fascinating plants and animals, providing them with critical habitat throughout the year. In spring, it is an essential 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.
My favorite place to go to be outside in Toledo for a run or picnic. This has some really cool trails, is attached to the Bike Trail, and has paths for walking/running/biking/etc. I find a new trail every time I go, check it out!
