The Motter Metro Park was acquired in two parcels in 2006 and 2009. The open meadow park land has been planted in prairie grasses and will restore grassland habitat that is in short supply in Allen and surrounding counties. The Little Riley Creek runs through the park, providing critical habitat for wetland and water species of plants and animals. A wildlife observation deck, wetland mitigation project, and environmental education panels are planned for the future as money becomes available.
Motter Metro Park is located at 10740 Columbus Grove-Bluffton Road in Richland Township.
