COVID-19 Update: Recreation

The following services are being temporarily suspended and will resume when the Coronavirus level of risk diminishes:

Park System: Ford Lake Park, North Bay Park, Loonfeather Point Park, North Hydro Park and our neighborhood parks will remain OPEN during the COVID-19 pandemic until further notice. Playgrounds, tennis courts and basketball courts are CLOSED to prohibit larger gatherings of people.
We encourage our residents to utilize our beautiful parks as an outlet and a way to exercise and connect with nature during this difficult time. Please be respectful of those around you and continue to observe the social distancing recommendations given. Please stay tuned for any further updates or changes.
Please note that park restrooms will remain closed until permanent above-freezing temperatures take hold.

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!
