Trade Up Program at Your Metroparks Encourages You to Try Before You Buy

This year, your Metroparks are once again offering the Trade Up Program allowing you to essentially try before you commit to an annual pass.

Here is how it works! January 1, 2024 through Labor Day (September 2, 2024) you can keep your daily Metropark pass(es) and use them to trade up to an annual pass. That means, you can present your daily pass(es) for a full-face value credit off your annual pass. Two daily passes get you twice the credit. Three gets you three times the credit… And four, you got it, means you can trade up for a regular annual pass at no additional cost for residents* of the five counties we serve – and just an additional $5 for non-residents.

This is the perfect program if you are a first-time visitor to a Metropark and you want to try it before you buy it. It really gives anyone the opportunity to come out to a Metropark and experience all the amazing things there are to do. Come out and enjoy a stroll on the trails, visit a Farm or Nature Center, bike through some great scenery or once it’s warm hit the beach. We know once you’ve had a chance to try a Metropark, you will want to experience them all year long.

Daily passes can be traded up to a regular or senior vehicle annual pass, regular or senior annual boat pass or a regular or senior vehicle/boat combo pass. Daily passes can not be traded up to the Oakland County Parks/ Metroparks combo pass.

  • The program allows for no more than four daily passes from separate visits to be traded up.
  • Daily passes must be traded up in person at one of our toll booths or park offices, and can not be traded in online.
  • Daily passes traded in MUST all be from separate days (i.e. visitors can not exchange multiple daily passes from the same day.)
  • Daily passes traded in MUST all be dated between January 1, 2024 and September 2, 2024.
  • Daily passes must be traded in by September 2, 2024.

They’re your Metroparks and they are waiting for you and know that after you enjoy your first, second, third or even fourth visit you can trade up to an entire year of fun!

*Resident pricing applies to anyone living in Livingston, Macomb, Oakland, Washtenaw and Wayne counties. Non-resident pricing applies to anyone living outside of those five counties.
