The Olander Park System
Parks provide endless opportunities for us to explore, discover, play and learn. The Olander Park System, also known as TOPS, is here to help local residents enjoy those opportunities.
TOPS serves Sylvania, Ohio and the surrounding communities with five beautiful parks, fun, educational public activities and three facilities for event rental. Explore our parks or attend an event, and you’re sure to see why we say, “When it comes to parks in the Sylvania area, we’re TOPS!”
From bike trails and boat rentals to swimming at the beach, TOPS’ five parks offer something for nearly everyone. Go beyond the ordinary and hunt for real fossils, or enjoy a relaxing day at one of the best fishing spots in Ohio. It’s all here, ready for you to discover.
Lake Olander Update
TOPS opens Lake Olander for winter use if and when it achieves a consistent 8 inches of clear blue ice. Until this occurs, Red Flags fly at various locations around the lake to indicate unsafe conditions. When the depth reaches the necessary figure, Green Flags signal the ice is safe.
Current Ice Thickness: 3 inches (2/14/19) – Closed – No activities until further notice. Red Flags flying.
