Tips for birding Bay View Park

The Howard H. and Mary A. Pinkley Memorial Trail is maintained as a wildlife viewing trail in the park. There are four regular parking spots and one handicapped spot at the Point Place model lighthouse along Summit Street between Bay View Retirees Golf Course and Cullen Park. Additional parking is available along Summit Street. This trail opened in 2012. The start of the trail is between the golf course and the water and runs along the road leading to the Coast Guard Station.

About Bay View Park

Toledo’s Bay View Park is located at the site of the long-defunct Lake Erie Amusement Park and Casino (1895-1910). The former amusement venue once featured rides, games, a boardwalk, and vaudeville shows. Like many turn-of-the-century amusement parks, fire spelled its downfall; the original pier burned in 1901 as did its replacement in 1910. Much of Bay View Park is undeveloped and managed to support and expand songbird habitat. Fishing is permitted along the shore. The site features a 1.25-mile gravel trail, which was completed in August 2012. The trail is dedicated to the late Howard Pinkley, a former community leader in Toledo’s Point Place neighborhood, and his late wife, Mary. Bayview Park is adjacent to Cullen Park (north) and Detwiler Park (west). The Point Place Path connects all three parks.
