Are you ready to get outside?

Metro Parks are ideal places to help you feel one with nature. You can take a stroll on more than 230 miles of trails, enjoy more active pursuits such as biking, canoeing, hiking, and even bring your leashed pet for a leisurely walk in the woods. There are nature centers, natural play areas, picnic shelters, fishing places, even a climbing wall. Come explore, it’s your nature!
