Walked the Nature trail twice. Maybe to some trees are nature. I expect to see wildlife. In the visitors center they have a large Eastern Fox snake that needs to be taken from them It is in a very small enclosure and its nose is rubbed white, when its supposed to be a copper color. Obviously this snake has rubbed his own nose off trying to get out. Eventually that will get infected and kill the animal. Also a Bald Eagle in a large enclosure sits in the same spot it was sitting two years ago the last time I was there until last week. The trail that had obviously been sprayed around the edges with round-up or some other poison, and inches beyond that its too overgrown to do anything but stay on the main trail. And the poison will prevent any wildlife from crossing the trail, which is why you see no animals. I will be contacting the Brownstown Animal Control officer to get the Eastern Fox snake which is protected by law removed from their possession. It needs a much larger enclosure. A hot side and a cool side, a water dish that the entire animal can fit into. And anti-biotics to help heal the worn nose that will eventually kill the reptile. It wasnt worth $10.00 to see no animals. Especially since I have a State park pass every year. The pass should be usable at both State parks and Metro parks. The Metropark annual pass comes out in January and is $30.00 too much knowing that the year includes 3/4 of the year where its too cold to visit. I feel I wasted $10 I saw no animals even after taking two laps on the "Nature" trail.
I think it could use remodeling, restrooms, and a roof-(you never know when or if someone from the sky is flying by),and it would be of great benefit to be shielded from the sun beating down on us.I strongly advise that the ratio for children to responsible adults be considered when bringing children, waves can be overwelming,and if you want a decent meal after your day at the Wave Pool, dont waste your money-go to A&W instead.It would be appreciated for patrons of the pool to be limited to jewerly that they were-very disturbing to be exposed to men showing off their body piercings in certain parts of their body-FREEDOM IN AMERICA DOES NOT MEAN MAKE OTHERS UNCOMFORTABLE OR DRESS disturbingly out of spite-they are influencing others.I can still smell cigarette smoke when I am on the pool deck.Eating concession building definitely needs remodeling,I dont recall air conditioning-and we shouldnt be seeing flies inside.There should be shelter for those whom want to wait for the storms to calm down, wasted money,had to leave of only having spent 3 hours.VERY NICE STAFF, AND APPRECIATED quick response when I felt the need to be helped, overwelmed in the waves.Dont hesitate for help from a lifeguard.
Beautiful, relaxing park with playgrounds, trails, grills, beautiful scenery, a museum, and more. Depending on the area, it can be quite lively or pleasantly tranquil. Wonderful for families, couples, or some alone time. PLEASE NOTE: If you are looking for a sandy, swimming beach, you should probably look elsewhere. That is one area this park is not particularly strong on. Everything else, however, is wonderful.

Recently My childs class visited this park for a field trip. It rained that day and when it came time to eat lunch the children were forced to eat outside in the rain. The people working at the indoor concession were very rude and would not let the children eat inside. I would never recommend another school to visit this park. I have never had people be so rude to a bunch of second graders.
Visited their wave pool and let our 18 month old play on their playground. Overall was a lot of fun, although I was disappointed with the h the june bugs everywhere, but what can you do. Also was shocked our 18 month old was charged to enter because he was taller than their height board for kids under that height. Which was extremely low, basically only infants who cant wall are free....

I feel this is a poorly designed metro park, does not flow like most of the other parks do. facilities are not up kept, bathrooms are in poor condition. I did like the Tot Lot, which seems to be the only thing that has been updated in the park since it has been open. All other facilities have been closed. not clean at all, just seems trashy.

I went there with my husband and our daughter. We were not aware of how late they were open, but they had no problem taking our money without telling us that the play area was under construction, all the buildings were closed, and all of the restrooms were closed. It was a 100 percent waste of money and we will never, ever go there again.
We love the metro parks. They have several nature trail that we hike frequently. They also have many pavilions to eat at. They have several nice parks for kids to play at. They have a wave pool that is fun in the summer time. Their nature pavilion has some neat animals for kids to look at as well as the local nature history.
Tried to do some kayak fishing in August at this Metro park--I dont recommend this park for that purpose. There was a lot of seaweed and algae. I paddled for about an hour along the coast couldnt find any decent spots to cast. Once I came to the beautiful view of the nuke smokestacks I turned around and headed home.
Wave pool, volleyball, tennis, basketball courts, outdoor pavilions for rent, lake access, and dining hall. This place is a great resource for a family, work, or church get together. $10/car admittance fee and $8/adult for the wave pool. Everything is kept very clean and tidy. Highly recommend.
Excellent park! Nice boat launch ramp, have used it a few times launching my 23 ft Maxum. Walk/bike paths a plenty. Nice little deck with viewing area of lake Erie on the south end of the park. Theres many deer, bald eagles and other wildlife roaming the park.
Went to the wave pool here. Ive been going since I was little and cant think of a time where I didnt have the best day ever. Its 10 to get into the park and 8 for the wave pool. Money well spent, they also have free floating tubes to use in the pool.
Fantastic fireworks every year. Amazing bike trail, boat launch, fishing spots, and wave pool. Lake Erie metro has everything you could possibly need in a park such as public restrooms, open BBQ grills, Pavillions and picnic tables.
I like this park, its fun for the whole family! The wave pool is the best! The only thing I dont like is the Fish Flies! They were everywhere and on everything! But maybe this is just the season for them (Mid-June).
Nice Park with plenty to do. Located right on Lake Erie where the Huron River lets out! Plenty of wildlife viewing and hiking trails to explore. Boat and canoe launch available.
Nearest metropark to me. Wish there were more to do here, but a great area around the wave pool for gatherings etc. A few walking and biking trails - paved and unpaved.
We visit the park several times a week to walk our dog. The park is absolutely beautiful! Lots of trails, bike paths, and viewing areas. The staff is always friendly.
