About The Dexter Park

Get rejuvenated by a day of outdoor fun and 1,549 user-friendly acres at Hudson Mills Metropark. Located 12 miles northwest of Ann Arbor, discover dense woodland, abandoned fields and serene wetlands, teeming with wildlife. The picturesque rapids of the Huron River make this a popular canoe and kayak destination. There are also plenty of good spots for shoreline and fly fishing.

Take advantage of an 18-hole, par-72 golf course and two disc golf courses. Cycle along a paved, 5.3-mile lane hike-bike trail or trek along the 2-mile Acorn Nature Trail. Play a pick-up game of basketball or volleyball. Or, gather a team and head on out to our softball diamonds or soccer fields. Other amenities include: four picnic shelters, swings, slides, a canoe camp, a group camp, children's play area, tennis and shuffleboard courts. Groomed cross-country ski trails provide hours of outdoor fun throughout the winter. Enjoy natural and inviting Hudson Mills Metropark all throughout the year.
