Bike Path a Great Success
This summer brought many bikers and walkers through Woodlawn with the opening of the Overland Parkway Bike Trail. Coming from Willys Park on the east and exiting at the main entrance.

The Overland Trial is a 10.5 mile long urban bike route at the center of the City of Toledo's total bike plan. The trail will make direct connection to existing parklands, community assets and provide links to other primary trails.  

The signage is up, major road improvement throughout the cemetery, is ready for your exploration.
