Perrysburg has eleven city parks with Rotary Community Park as our newest city park. Parks in Perrysburg offer over 162.5 acres of green space within the city limits.
Bicentennial Park is a park tucked into a quiet neighborhood. There is a picnic pavilion located close to the playground. The crushed stone walking path surrounds the soccer field and baseball field. The complete circuit of the walking path is .5 miles.
Eisenhower Park is one of the tastiest park because it located next to Mr. Freeze, some of the best ice cream around. To burn off those calories, the kids can enjoy the playground.

Construction of Rotary Community Park began in the fall of 2009 with the planting of 58 trees as part of the mini-arboretum and the installation of parking. In 2010, a Rain Garden was installed on the Fort Meigs Road entrance with grant funding from Wal-Mart.This park will be developed in five phases. The park is designed for the younger Perrysburg residents. The walking trail was completed in fall of 2011. The crushed stone walking path is .7 mile in length for the entire circuit of the park. Five tennis courts were added to the park in June 2012. Perrysburg Garden Club planted the entrance boulevard and three flagpoles were installed in 2012.
Future plans for this park include: a shelter house, three basketball courts, baseball field and six smaller size soccer fields that can also be utilized as three regulation soccer fields. The last phase is the construction of a splash pool.
