Trivia Tidbits:  Wildwood Preserve and The Manor House are within Sylvania Township, and surrounded by Sylvania Township/Sylvania Schools neighborhoods.  In 1975 the Metropolitan Park District of the Toledo Area purchased the 475-acre Stranahan Estate and Wildwood Preserve was created.  The location of the land purchased was listed as Sylvania Township at the time, but Toledo now lays claim to it.   It is the most visited of all the  Metroparks locations.  The park's own published history states that it is located in Sylvania Township, and for many years it was touted as a "Sylvania" park, but today Wildwood is known as a "Toledo" park, with the "Sylvania" label being dropped altogether.
