Blue Creek Conservation Area
|Blue Creek Conservation Area|
Visit the new area on the east side of Schadel Road, across the street from the historic hog barn.
The rustic area has a parking lot and a one-mile loop trail leading to a wetland and a quarry pond. Fishing is permitted in the pond. A temporary restroom is located in the parking lot.
In the 18th century, the Wyandot, Potawatomi, Ottawa, and Chippewa lived on the land. By the 19th century, it was being used for quarrying limestone. This was the case until Toledo purchased the property in 1917 as the location of the Toledo House of Corrections, which was used until 1991.
