On a naturally scenic portion of the Huron River, the Oakwoods Metropark has a fine tangle of nature trails that cut through a cross section of habitat, from views of river wetlands to mature woodlands and open fields. The adjacent nature center does an excellent job of interpreting the site for you with live-animal exhibits and knowledgeable staff. The Lower Huron Metropark has the Turtle Cove Family Aquatic Center, with waterslides, a lazy river, and a zero-depth pool. Willow Metropark has an impressive golf course, a disc golf course, and an activity center with a pool and skatepark. Oakwoods Metropark, the largest of the three, offers nature trails. The wetlands that border the Huron River are home to numerous waterfowl.
