Ground Broken For New Metropark

Over a decade after the Toledo Sports Arena was razed, work finally began in December to convert the space into the long-planned Glass City Metropark. Being constructed by the Lathrop Co., the new park will include camping, a pavilion, a sledding hill, connections to a lengthy trail system and more. Glass City Metropark, scheduled to open in the fall of 2020, is part of an effort to revitalize the area, including the nearby Marina Lofts. The National Park Service recently agreed to contribute $750,000 to the project.
