Connection is Key: The Downtown Toledo Riverfront / by Matt Rubin

Downtown Riverfront View

Natural waterways are among the most valuable resources for any community. While transporting their goods down the Maumee River, the French fur traders doubtfully looked around and imagined a Glass City. Fast forward 500 years. Restaurants, hotels, parks, and unlimited potential take the shape of the Toledo skyline. Dissecting the 22nd Century Committee's Downtown Toledo plan and bringing your business to the Riverfront community leads you to one word: Connection.

Connection to the City:

  • The major avenues, including Monroe Street, Dorr Street, Woodville Road, Monroe Street, and Dorr Street all point traffic straight to the riverfront.
  • There is plenty of public parking in and around downtown within close proximity. On street parking is even free during the week from 11am - 2pm. The downtown area also has a system of pedestrian bridges and tunnels for workers to quickly and safely get around during the winter months.

  • Riverside Trail connects the Toledo Zoo to Promenade Park and Middlegrounds Metro Park. 
  • Riverside Trail East connects Dockside and the Marina District.
