Toledo Stranahan Arboretum:  This 47-acre site features an excellent collection of rare trees, ravine, wetlands and restored prairie. The best times of year to visit are May to see the wildflowers in full bloom and October to see the autumn colors. The more than 1,500 trees include a variety of North American pine, oak, maple and buckeye. However, more interesting trees from China, Japan, Norway and Serbia are also prevalent. The arboretum is run by the University of Toledo and is located within the Oak Openings sand dune region. Appropriately, peaks of old sand dunes are still visible above the forest’s undergrowth.
