Wildwood Preserve Metropark is a nature reserve and historic estate located in Sylvania Township, Ohio. Wildwood is the most-visited of the 19-park Metroparks Toledo district.
Metroparks Toledo purchased the property in 1975 following a citizen-led effort to preserve the grounds of Stranleigh Estate. The Georgian colonial style house and surrounding buildings comprised the family residence of Champion spark plug magnate Robert A. Stranahan, Sr., his wife Paige, and their children, including professional golfer Frank Stranahan.
Wildwood features one of the last remaining public, free-admission gardens designed by Ellen Biddle Shipman. The park also features the former Oak Grove School, a one-room schoolhouse built by the Sylvania Board of Education in 1897.

  • Went to a wedding here and it was a great day. The side courtyard where the ceremony was held was in full bloom. It even had a robin feeding her babies in a nearby tree... The house is incredible with so many interesting rooms. There's even a little shooting range in the basement. I'm so glad our friends chose this location. It was a perfect day 😊
  • Love this park moved away first time back in a long time saw a lot of deer
