Northwood is a small town right outside of Toledo, Ohio. It is a tight-knit community where everyone is involved and interested in bettering their neighborhood. There isn't very little crime and an ideal place to live if you would like to raise kids here.

Northwood is a small community outside of Toledo, OH. I love this community because I feel safe here. I would like to see more businesses and places to do things.
Always quiet, safe, and secure. Never have had any problems with neighbors or any people in the community. Only issue is the trains, but the overpass recently built has helped a good deal with that.
