Park Entrance & Shelter Rental Fees

The Ypsilanti Township Park System consists of 30 parks and recreation facilities totaling over 900 acres. The parks range in size from 0.3 acres to 190 acres and provide wonderful areas for informal play, organized programs, or to simply enjoy nature. Many of our Neighborhood parks have recently been renovated with new park and play equipment and added landscaping. Our larger “Community” parks provide enhanced facilities including picnic shelters, boardwalks and trails, access to canoeing, kayaking, boating, fishing, athletic fields, courts, and restroom facilities. To better serve you, some of our larger parks are staffed by park attendants (May - September). We also have Park Rangers on duty during the park season that patrol all of the parks within the Township. If you need assistance, our park staff is there to serve you!
