About this Location

The South Toledo park named for the creek is an oasis in an urban area, providing crucial feeding and resting ground for migratory birds and a nesting area for resident species. The forested banks of Swan Creek offer a sheltered corridor of wild vegetation in the midst of the city. Animals such as deer, foxes, and raccoons use the corridor to move between feeding, resting and mating areas.

Swan Creek spans 441 acres and an additional 154 acres along the Swan Creek Corridor. Activities and attractions include scenic overlooks along the trails, a swinging bridge, indoor and picnic shelters, a playground, and wildlife feedings stations with indoor viewing areas called Windows on Wildlife.
