Scenic drive or walking trails. Picnic areas, creeks, surrounded by upscale neighborhoods. Nice spot to visit if you're unfamiliar with the western side of Macomb Co

The bands are great in the Summer and they are free. Excellent place to take pictures. There's deer walking around at sundown and they are almost tame. Great place to rent a canoe or a paddle boat. So much to do.

I was quite impressed with the nature center and the trail system. Also the white-tailed deer like to hang out under the trees near the entrance to the park.
