The Erie County Metropolitan Park District was created in 1968, with the name changed to Erie MetroParks in 1991. Starting with Osborn MetroPark (formerly the Osborn Prison Honor Farm), Erie MetroParks has grown to include 12 parks or preserves. Many of the properties that are managed by the park district are maintained in their natural state in keeping with the role assigned by the Ohio Revised Code. Areas used for active recreation are designed to have minimal impact on the natural environment of the parks. Each park is very unique and allows for a variety of activities for people of all ages!
