Welcome to Olander Park
Whether you prefer activities on land or in the water, 60-acre Olander Park in Sylvania is a recreational oasis that’s sure to please.
At the center of it all is a spring-fed, 28-acre lake that’s perfect for fishing and boating.
For land lovers, there’s a 1.1 mile paved, ADA-accessible loop surrounding the lake that’s ideal for walking, jogging, rollerblading and bicycling. Blow off steam at one of the park’s three playgrounds or gather friends for a game on one of four sand volleyball courts.
Olander Park also features three facilities that are available to rent for wedding receptions, meetings, family reunions and more.
