Many areas of the MetroParks lend themselves for both guided and self-guided tours. For some, the idea of self-guided may be appealing since there is no cost associated with the tour itself. Also, it provides visitors the opportunity to enjoy the MetroParks at their own pace. We may be able to organize a combination of both a guided and self-guided tour if it better serves your needs. An educator will assist in the coordination of your tour and provide guidelines that need to be followed. We ask that all self-guided tours be scheduled with the Education Department so that we may notify the staff at these facilities that they will be receiving guests.
