Wood Hollow
yellow bar History & Wildlife

Six years ago, a Metro Park in Hudson was not on anyone's radar – that is, until a resident called Summit Metro Parks to donate 150 acres. 

That gift of land in 2009, by a man whose family "loves the parks and the Fall Hiking Spree, but wants to remain anonymous," was the catalyst behind Wood Hollow Metro Park.

Purchases of several adjacent properties brought the park's current size to a little more than 300 acres. It includes 1.2-mile Downy Loop, with several bridges and boardwalks. The trail's name is a nod to the small woodpeckers that are among the species inhabiting "wood hollows" in the area's beech-maple woods and wetlands.

Summit Metro Parks considers Wood Hollow a "satellite park": It does not have its own dedicated maintenance staff and equipment. Instead, the crew from Liberty Park in Twinsburg will maintain it.

Amenities

The 300-acre park includes a 55-car parking lot, fishing pond and a 1.2-mile natural-surface walking trail. A playfield will be prepped in the summer of 2015, and restrooms and a picnic shelter are coming.
