Side Cut Metropark Reviews
Park is very beautiful. I highly recommend trying the Canal Experience portion which takes you on a replica canal boat through an actual lock of the Old Miami and Erie Canal. The park is wonderfully..... more »
Nice to take a stop by the park for a quick walk, or longer along the Maumee River. It is peaceful, yet there is a playground and picnic areas for all. more »
A great place to walk, bike, take your dog, or take the kids or grandkids to the playground. Not to mention going fishing or having a picnic. There are also educational opportunities with the canal locks and look out on the wild area where you can observe several birds.
This is my ultimate favorite park!! The locks are an amazing piece of preserved history and absolutely accessible. There are so many nooks with beautiful scenery and places to relax, cookout (covered and uncovered) and many trails to enjoy. The path along the river is well maintained and absolutely beautiful.
