This park is an excellent location for fishing in the Maumee River. There is plenty of parking, fishing access, jet ski launch, canoe and kayak storage racks, picnic tables, and a walking path along the river which connects the park to Fort Meigs State Memorial. There is a small hill for sledding during the Winter. In 2012, a paved walking/bike path was constructed under the Maumee River bridge that links Orleans Park to Fort Meigs.
Launching of jet skis and boats is available at no charge. This boat launch is only suitable for shallow draft water vehicles and is dependent on the current depth of the Maumee River. There is no boat dock for tying off boats or jet skis. There is parking available for vehicles and boat trailers. There is no overnight parking of vehicles.
The City of Perrysburg has four (4) canoe storage racks located at Orleans Park. Each of these storage racks has space for 12 canoes with a total of 48 rental spaces. The yearly rental fee is $25 per canoe/or kayak. The City provides the chains to secure the canoes and kayaks and the users are responsible for providing their own lock. This is available to City of Perrysburg residents only.
People who currently have a storage space must renew their spot by March 31st. On April 1st, spaces may become available.
For more information on reserving space on the canoe and kayak rack, call the Department of Public Service.
