About The Shelby Twp Park

Get that “up north” feeling without leaving the suburbs at top-rated Stony Creek Metropark. Extending across Oakland and Macomb counties, 4,461 scenic-acres abound with opportunity for outdoor recreation all year long. Spend an afternoon boating or swimming in 500-acre Stony Creek Lake. This is prime fishing country with a state record crappie caught here. Hike, bike, run or inline skate through lush woodlands, serene wetlands and tallgrass prairies. In the winter, walk, cross-country ski or snowshoe across marked trails. A winter sports area includes snowboard, sled and toboggan hills. The Metropark also features a nature center, mountain bike skills course, disc-golf course, 18-hole regulation golf course, baseball diamonds, playgrounds, soccer fields, volleyball and basketball courts. Picnic areas with reservable shelters, grills and comfort stations are located throughout the park.
