The Motter Metro Park was acquired in two parcels in 2006 and
2009. The open meadow park land has been planted in prairie grasses
and will restore grassland habitat that is in short supply in Allen
and surrounding counties. The Little Riley Creek runs through the
park, providing critical habitat for wetland and water species of
plants and animals. A wildlife observation deck, wetland mitigation
project, and environmental education panels are planned for the
future as money becomes available.
Motter Metro Park is located at 10740 Columbus Grove-Bluffton
Road in Richland Township.
