About

Get your daily dose of fresh air by packing lunch and enjoying Dexter-Huron Metropark. Escape your routine and get rejuvenated by the peaceful sights and sounds of nature at this 122-acre site, just 7.5 miles northwest of Ann Arbor. Be soothed by the soft ripple of the gently flowing waters of the Huron River and the sanctuary of thick, rich woodlands. Observe vibrant, unique blossoms throughout the spring and summer which include harbinger-of-springs, false rue anemones, purple cresses, and trout lilies. This heavily wooded park offers shady picnic areas, swings, slides, a softball diamond, fishing, and convenient canoe launching. Come out and enjoy the day at Dexter-Huron Metropark.
