The Bowling Green Fault, a geological feature unique to the Great Lakes region, passes through Farnsworth Metropark. The 100-mile-long fault, which runs from south of Findlay into southern Michigan, is exposed at the Maumee River in the bedrock and in the river rapids when the water is low. A fault, sometimes associated with earthquakes, is a fracture in a rock formation where movement has occurred.
