n Season IParking Leads To Parkeventy years ago this spring, Metroparks inherited land that would lead to a new Metropark on Central Avenue in the village


of Berkey. But the inherited property was nowhere close to the site of todays Secor Metropark it was a parking lot at the corner of Jefferson and Huron Streets in downtown Toledo. In April 1942, the park district received land valued at $93,000 from the estate of businessman Arthur J. Secor, who died the previous summer. In his will, Secor left the parking lot to the park district, stipulating that money raised from its operation be used to develop a new Metropark. In June 1956, the Board of Park Commissioners unveiled plans for 500-acre Secor Park, including an arboretum with over 500 varieties of trees and 200 types of shrubs. On the occasion of Ohio's sesquicentennial celebration, 135 trees one from each school in Lucas County were planted to create the Sesquicentennial School Grove. In September 1959, 300 invited guests attended a dedication of the nature center at Secor.

Rotary Gift To Make

he name Middlegrounds will again be just as appropriate as it was in the 1840s, but for different reasons.

That vision received a major boost in May when the Rotary Club of Toledo celebrated its 100th anniversary by donating $300,000 to the Middlegrounds project. It was the largest community investment in the history of a club with a long record of making a difference. The Metroparks system is a gift to the community and it keeps on giving, said Larry Howe, Toledo Rotary Foundation vicechairman. It is our pleasure to be part of this. Rotarians gathered May 5 at the 28-acre site to celebrate the double milestones a century of service and a future where a half-mile of parkland stretches from the Anthony Wayne Bridge to the Norfolk Southern railroad

yard, southwest of Martin Luther King Plaza. The first downtown Metropark will add to the momentum that has been building along the riverfront while serving nearby neighborhoods as a clean, safe, natural destination for families. At the May 5 event, Steve Madewell, Metroparks executive director, noted recent announcements about the renovation of nearby Promenade Park, owned by the city, and the former steam plant, which will house the downtown YMCA. We need to be thinking about connectivity and looking at the riverfront as a whole, Mr. Madewell said. There is so much

In the early days of the city of Toledo, the thin strip of land between Swan Creek and the Maumee River then called the Middle Ground was the regional hub for transportation and commerce. In 2015, when Middlegrounds Metropark opens on the site, it will again be a hub, where neighbors mingle with office workers from downtown buildings, fishermen share the incomparable river views with joggers, and picnickers enjoy watching rowers skimming the waters of the largest river on the Great Lakes.

potential for this property to become an urban greenspace to serve those who live nearby as well as drawing people downtown. Toledo Mayor Mike Bell called the Metropark another piece in the puzzle. With all the energy and economic development thats going on along the river, this is a perfect jewel to that portion of what we are trying to do, Mr. Bell said. This is just a beautiful location and its a great day for Toledo. Most of Toledos bridges can be viewed from the Middlegrounds, as well as parts of downtown. The Locke Branch of the ToledoLucas County Public Library can be seen across the river. U.S. Rep. Marcy Kaptur, who also spoke at the event, talked about the park not only preserving riverfront land, but offering visitors an opportunity to learn more about the regions history. The Great River is the reason Toledo is here, she said. And it becomes more important to our future all the time. People can

come here to re-discover why people came here originally. Completion of phase one of the The Middlegrounds is scheduled for fall 2015, following a major renovation to the adjacent Anthony Wayne Bridge. It will include a shelter named for Toledo Rotary, which will be the centerpiece of a plaza. The shelter will resemble a railroad roundhouse, which used to occupy part of the site. Trails, parking, restrooms and river access are also part of the initial plans for the property. The Middlegrounds previously was used as a granary and a railroad yard. A bridge was once located at the south end of the property, but it was destroyed by a freighter that came loose from its moorings. For decades after the closing of the rail yard, the property was used as a dumping ground for a variety of building material and debris. Metroparks purchased the land in 2006. Since then, more than 8,000 tons of debris has been removed from the site. The $1.2 million purchase price

and other costs associated with the purchase were reimbursed to the park district from a grant through the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration Coastal Estuarine Land Conservation Program. The grant, totaling $1.5 million, was designated for the project by Congresswoman Kaptur in February 2005. A committee of citizens and Metroparks staff drafted a General Management Plan for the park, with public meetings

at each stage, to guide future development. The Middle Ground Was Areas Commercial Hub Today, the Middlegrounds of the mid-1800s would probably be called an intermodal transportation hub. Lake vessels, canal boats and railroads converged on the property, creating a honeycomb of commercial activity. There were docks, warehouses, grain

elevators, a train depot, hotels, boarding houses and a church for railroaders and sailors. A flood in 1883 changed the face of this area forever. The train depot was moved to higher ground, and in time the area was relegated to use for rail yards and warehousing. Declining use of the Erie Canal, which terminated at Swan Creek, forced grain elevators to relocate upriver. By the late 1880s the once busy commercial area fell into neglect and was all but forgotten. An attempt at residential development failed in the early 1990s. In 1997 Owens-Corning Corporation dedicated its corporate headquarters on a portion of the Middlegrounds, bringing new life to the historic area. Clean Up: 8,700 Tons

Of Debris Removed


efore planning for a new Metropark at the Middlegrounds could begin, first the site had to be cleaned up. Metroparks spent $283,000 to remove or recycle 8,700 tons (more than 173 million pounds!) of debris.

Photos on this and previous pages show the Middlegrounds in the late 1800's and today. The once busy commercial hub was forever changed by a great flood in 1883.

What was removed: 1,800,000 pounds of concrete 6,400,000 pounds of asphalt 7,000 pounds of steel 200,000 pounds of RR ties 700,000 pounds of wood chips 902,000 pounds of logs 5,080,000 pounds of stone/ aggregate 2,280,000 pounds of soil/fill


New Playgrounds will have Interactive SculpturesWhen we have these in place, they will be unlike anything else around, Mr. Zenk said. They wont be just playgrounds they will be Metroparks playgrounds, with designs that inspire kids to discover nature.


ventually, they will be unique play structures that blend into the surrounding landscape and engage young Metroparks visitors in outdoor adventures. But they begin as large blocks of Styrofoam in a downtown Toledo warehouse.

Thats where artists Doug Kampfer and Jeremy Links create detailed, natural-looking pieces of art that double as play equipment like the slide in the shape of a downed tree complete with a great horned owl nest that has already been installed at Secor Metropark. The artists, who were commissioned after Metroparks consulted the Arts Commission of Greater Toledo, call their creations interactive sculpture. Dave Zenk, superintendent of parks, calls them signature playgrounds. When we have these in place, they will be unlike anything else

around, Mr. Zenk said. They wont be just playgrounds they will be Metroparks playgrounds, with designs that inspire kids to discover nature. Opened last November at the Walnut Grove picnic area, the Secor playground was the first for the new concept. Each new playground built in the future will include the unique, interactive features, which reflect the Metroparks conservation mission and the natural attributes to be found in individual parks. Farnsworth and Swan Creek will also be among the first Metroparks to receive playground makeovers. A design currently being developed for Farnsworth incorporates things visitors might find in that riverside park a climbing wall inspired by the Bowling Green Fault, great blue heron talk tubes, fungi steps and a buckeye leaf balance beam.

The Secor project was the first for Metroparks and for Kampfer and Links new company, Graphite Design + Build. (Our name describes what we do, Kampfer said. We can design and build anything.) The 32-year-old Bowling Green State University graduates have several years of experience with another company creating custom, interactive sculptures for international clients, but recently set out on their own. The artists demonstrated their process while working on a tree house for an Indiana childrens zoo: They start with a drawing, then mold the design out of wood or clay to create a threedimensional model. Then they sculpt the full-size piece out of Styrofoam blocks using a heated wire and a variety of other sculpting tools, coat the piece in fiberglass, finish it with an epoxy putty and sculpt the final touches. Steel is added for reinforcement where needed.

The Secor playground also includes a tree house with another slide and a variety of swings for different ages on a cushioned surface. It was built thanks to a donation from Frank and Babs Cubbon and unveiled in November as part of a weekend-long celebration with family and friends to mark Mr. and Mrs. Cubbons birthdays and their 63rd wedding anniversary. Denise Johnson, director of visitor services, noted that the playground was an appropriate legacy for a playful couple who have enjoyed the Metroparks with their own family for many years. Mr. Cubbon credited his wife, Babs, with the idea of funding a project in the park, noting that she grew up in the Mill Creek MetroParks in Youngstown, where her father was a superintendant.


Frank and Babs Cubbon at the Secor playground they helped fund. Metroparks Board members Fritz Byers and Scott Savage; Mark Dangler and Mary Caprella, of BP; and Board member Lera Doneghy. Jeremy Links and Doug Kampfer, of Graphite + Design, work on a sculpture with help from an artist friend, Don Soltis, in their downtown Toledo studio.

An inscription on the fallen tree sculpture reads: For the love of children and nature, this playground made possible by the Frank and Babs Cubbon Family." A Playground Challenge When representatives of the BP-Husky Refinery in Oregon came to a Metroparks board meeting this winter to present a check for $25,000 toward the cost of a new playground at Pearson Metropark, they issued a challenge to the community: Raise another $25,000 for the project and the company will match that amount. Friends of Pearson Metropark took up the challenge, donating $3,500, and other organizations are considering donations. The Pearson playground will get a complete makeover that will include sculptures inspired by the parks swampy history, a new landscape, improved draining and better access. If you or a group you belong to would like to contribute to the Pearson playground project and help Metroparks meet the BPHusky $25,000 challenge, please contact Denise Johnson, 419-4079716.

Steve Madewell Named Executive DirectorThe conservation mission of regional park systems and open space districts must play a significant role in the stabilization and revitalization of the urban and metropolitan areas and exploring future opportunities.

Photo background: floodplain at Swan Creek Preserve Metropark. Before the acquisition of Middlegrounds Metropark, this preserve was the only Metropark within the city of Toledo.


tephen W. Madewell was named executive director of Metroparks of the Toledo Area and began work in April as the eighth chief executive since the park districts founding in 1928.

"I am humbled and honored to be afforded this opportunity and challenge, Mr. Madewell said. This is incredibly exciting from a number of perspectives. Mr. Madewell, 56, was director since 2009 at Lake Metroparks, an 8,000 acre park system in northeast Ohio. Scott J. Savage, president of the threemember Board of Park Commissioners, governing body of Metroparks, said that Mr. Madewell was selected from a pool of outstanding candidates provided by Waverly Partners, an executive search firm. Steve stood out to us because of his breadth of experience, thorough knowledge of special park districts and deep commitment to the conservation mission that is the core of what we are all about, Mr. Savage said. Steve has spent his career in special park districts in Ohio, working as a naturalist, park ranger and natural resources

manager, Mr. Savage added. He has been in senior leadership for more than 20 years and director of two excellent park districts here in Ohio. My fellow commissioners and I have a great deal of confidence in his ability to lead Metroparks. The board, which also includes vice-presidents Lera Doneghy and Fritz Byers, voted unanimously to hire Mr. Madewell. In Lake County, Mr. Madewell served as deputy director from 1991 to 2009 and interim director for a year before being named to the top position. From 1988 to 1990, he was division head of resource interpretation and protection. Previously, he served as director of the Geauga Park District. He was also a park ranger, naturalist and environmental interpretation and resource protection manager at the Greene County Recreation and Parks Department. Mr. Madewell has retained his certification as a peace officer, and in May, was sworn in as a Metroparks ranger by Lucas County Probate Court Judge Jack Puffenberger. After spending a period getting to know the staff, volunteers,

visitors and community, Mr. Madewell said he was impressed with several things he found: First and foremost the park system is deeply valued he said. Everyone I have met and talked to immediately told me they love the Metroparks. Be it runners, bikers, birders or anglers, parents or grandparents, young adults or seniors, they are quick to point out their favorite park and what they like to do there. It is also clear that our staff is highly regarded and extremely committed, and that we have a great collection of volunteers who are truly devoted to the successful execution of our mission, he said. Metroparks has done a terrific job with the conservation, protection and promotion of natural resources unique to this region. Mr. Madewell added that in the current economic climate when many Midwestern cities are challenged with redefining themselves and their future, the conservation mission of regional park systems and open space districts must play a significant role in the stabilization and revitalization of the urban and metropolitan areas and exploring future opportunities.

Exhibit Captures The Ancient Ohio Landscape Stunning images by photographers Art Weber and Tim Black reveal the Native American earthworks of prehistoric Ohio in an exhibit through July 29 at the National Center for Nature Photography at Secor Metropark. Recent discoveries about these mysterious earthworks give evidence that Ohio was a cultural center in ancient North America. Prominently featured in the exhibit are four ancient earthworks under consideration for UNESCO World Heritage status: the Newark Earthworks, The Fort Ancient Enclosure, Serpent Mound and the restored Mound City. The exhibit is presented as part of the Ancient Ohio Summer of events sponsored by the Newark Earthworks Center and The Ohio State University Newark Campus. On Saturday, July 28 at 1 p.m., Bradley T. Lepper, curator of archaeology for the Ohio Historical Society in Columbus, will give a presentation about the Newark Earthworks, the largest set of geometric enclosures and mounds in the world. The work of the Hopewell culture between 100 B.C.

Field Notes

of 10-year-old Alex Lenhart began making the long drive from the Cleveland area to bring their son to Nature Shoot photo classes at the Nature Photography Center at Secor Metropark. They wanted to encourage his budding interest in photography. The trips paid off when Alex, now 12, was recognized this spring at a Photo Arts Club of Toledo contest awards presentation as the youngest winner in the 27 year history of the contest. Alex won both first and second place in the Fauna category for his photos taken at classes taught by Art Weber and Bob Jacksy of the Metroparks staff during Photo Shoots at the Toledo Zoo and Nature's Nursery. Alex's parents Philip and Sally Lenhart credited the Photography Center and its staff with inspiring and encouraging Alex to pursue his passion for photography. Rangers Increase Patrols On Trails Nearly 150 miles of trails in the Metroparks offer places to unwind, explore, recreate and learn about nature. But increased traffic and conflicting uses on the trials can lead to frustration for some hikers, bicyclists and dog walkers. On the first Saturday in June which was National Trails Day park rangers began stepped up patrols on the trail system to reinforce park rules and trail etiquette. Types of behavior targeted for enforcement included bicyclists travelling too fast, dog walkers with leashes longer than the permitted 8 feet and runners who

and A.D. 400 the geometric earthworks covered nearly five square miles, using more than seven million

cubic feet of earth. Why did the Hopewell build such monumental works? Were they prehistoric forts or ancient American cathedrals? After the program, meet Dr. Lepper in the gallery to learn more about the Ancient Ohio Landscape. Admission to the gallery and Dr. Leppers presentation are free.

run more than two people abreast. We have rules and regulations, but whats most important on the trails is common courtesy, said Joe Fausnaugh, chief ranger for Metroparks of the Toledo Area. In additional to law enforcement, trails are patrolled by the 224 members of the Volunteer Trail Patrol, who are identified by yellow shirts and provide customer service to park visitors. The volunteers are trained in customer service, park district rules and regulations, first aid and CPR. New Trail Signs Installed New signs at Wildwood Preserve are a sign of things to come for trails throughout the Metroparks. In addition to new posts identifying trails and providing other way-finding information, markers are now spaced every tenth of a mile.

Using the mile markers and new kiosk maps, runners and walkers can now plot their own distance and make their own course using the trail system. The markers also allow trail users with cell phones to better pinpoint their location in the event that they need to call 911 for an emergency. New trail markers will appear next at Swan Creek Preserve, and along the Towpath at Farnsworth, Bend View and Providence. Eventually, they will be used on trails in all of the Metroparks. Fishing Line Recycled Four pounds may not sound like a lot, but when it comes to keeping used fishing line out of the Maumee River, where birds and other wildlife can become entangled and injured, four pounds goes a long way. Thats the amount of fishing line collected this spring in receptacles placed at Side Cut, site of the spring walleye run.

New kiosks at trailheads are part of new standards for trail signage. Below: Fishermen during the spring walleye run. The line is sent to Berkley, a fishing line manufacturer, to be recycled. UPS in Maumee agreed to ship the package at no charge. Ponds Edges Improved Visitors to Mallard Lake at Oak Openings or the lakes at Pearson this summer will notice a dramatic improvement to the shorelines of those popular bodies of water. The bank stabilization projects, which are still under way, replace outdated erosion control methods with more effective and aesthetically pleasing slabs of limestone, which soften the edges, provide beds for native plants and offer better access to the water. Great Park Search Returns The Great Park Search is back! The summer scavenger hunt provides new clues each week to find signs hidden in nine Metroparks. Participants follow clues then enter the secret codeword they find on a website. Each codeword entered is an entry in that weeks drawing to win a gift card to The Andersons. There is a new drawing each week during the nine-week program. All entries are also entered into a drawing at the end of the program, with one winner taking home a prize package, also from The Andersons, worth more than $1,000. The Great Park Search is sponsored by The Andersons,, Buckeye CableVision and The Blade. See for information about how to begin your search.

September 2011 through June 2012 Antique Bed Returned To The Manor House After 43 Years A mahogany canopy antique bed from the home of Robert and Page Stranahan now the Wildwood Manor House is back where it belongs, thanks to a generous donation by the Edmund Collins Family. According to Don Pennell, who married into the Collins family in 1967, the bed had been in the guest room of Edmund and Louise Collins Ottawa Hills home for years before he learned of its past. A handwritten bill of sale from J.F. Bennett Studios, Inc., written in 1969, contained the first clue: From Stranahan Estate, it said. Later, Mr. Pennell took a tour of the Manor House grounds. It was on this tour that I learned that there were no original Stranahan pieces in the house. Mr. Pennell contacted Metroparks programs director Beckie Finch, and with the assistance of Ed Hill at the Toledo Museum of Art, they concluded that the bed was likely from the Stranahans private quarters. In addition, the manufacturer of the box springs and mattress confirmed that they were from the same period and likely were part of the original bed. The bed was returned to the Manor House after the sale of the Collins home. The Edmund Collins family is delighted that the bed has finally returned to the Manor House for all to enjoy after being absent for nearly 43 years, Mr. Pennell said.
