TOLEDO, OH (WTOL) - Located in downtown Toledo on the Maumee River, Middlegrounds Metropark can offer some peace and quiet from the hustle and bustle of city life.

Visitors can wander along with 1.5 mile trail along the water, or sit and watch the freighters pass through downtown.

This metropark also offers an off-leash area for large and small dogs as well as a launch for kayaks and canoes.

The transformation of the 28-acre green space included removing 8,000 tons of debris.

The trail starts under the Anthony Wayne Bridge and continues through the high grass.

The park also has the Rotary Pavilion available for rent and small charcoal grills.
