Community Information

Swanton Township is the home of the Oak Openings Metropark, as well as a portion of the Maumee State Forest. A significant part of the converted railroad lines known as "Rails to Trails" is found in the South portion of the township, and Valleywood Golf Club is in the Northern section. The township is served by two churches within its borders, as well as several others in close proximity. Two school systems serve our residents well - that of Swanton Local Schools and the Anthony Wayne School District.

Hospitals and Physicians
There are several hospitals in the greater Toledo area to serve your needs.  Should you have an emergency situation, get to the nearest hospital as quickly as possible!  St. Luke's Hospital in Maumee is the one nearest to Swanton Township, and a link to their website is given below There are literally hundreds of physicians and medical specialists within a 25-mile radius of our township.  If you are new to the area, obtaining recommendations from friends or family who have lived here for a while can be helpful.  In addition, most hospitals have a physician referral service available.  Check the yellow pages of your telephone book for a listing by category or specialty.

As with most early settlements in America, one of the first items of business was the building of a place for residents to worship. It was common to build one structure to serve several functions and congregations, and you will find many of these buildings dotting the landscape in NW Ohio.

Swanton Township has two churches within its boundaries, and many others close by. Many other churches, synagogues, and mosques are located in and around Toledo, and space limitations preclude listing all of them here.

Shopping Information
Grocery stores, gas stations, restaurants, and other retail shops are close by in the villages of Swanton, Whitehouse, Waterville and Holland.  In addition, Maumee and Toledo are within a 25-mile radius to the East, as is Wauseon to the West.
