Metroparks Toledo event highlights Pearson Mitigation Bank

Metroparks Toledo’s Hidden Gems series is an invitation to families to visit parks or park areas they may not be familiar with. Entertainment, food trucks and activities are part of each event. This first in a series of five mini-festivals highlights lesser known locations in the Metroparks and will begin at the north addition to Pearson Metropark in Oregon, Saturday, June 25, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

While Pearson is one of the most popular parks in the park system, with more than 600,000 visitors last year, the 300-acre north addition is less well known. Stream + Wetlands Foundation has restored more than 200 acres of wetlands in Pearson. Click here to find out more about this mitigation bank.
