Great place to go hiking on over 5 miles of wooded footpaths with some rolling hills and around a small lake. You can often see: deer, wild turkeys, sandhill cranes, blue herons, feed chickadees and other small birds out of your hands, and many wildflowers.

There is also, a larger lake that is connected to a river system. In summer you can rent kayaks, canoes, SUP and paddle boats for an inexpensive rate. No motor boats are allowed on the big lake but you can use small sailboats and many people fish here. There is an adjacent golf course too. A larger state park, Island Lake borders Kensington and many people canoe or bike between the two parks.

In winter there are cross country ski trails both in the woods and on the golf course. You can rent all needed equipment for about $13.00.

I highly recommend a visit if you have a few extra days in the Metro area and are looking for somewhere nature oriented.

I personally love the trails and all the wildlife. Of all the metro parks I have been to, this one has the most active wildlife of them all. Lots of birds, small and large. I have seen baby fox, baby swans being hatched, mating snapping turtles, mating snakes, lots of deer, migration of toads, even Michigan rattlers. (only twice because they are shy) The beaches and waterpark are wonderful fun for families, especially birthdays. Lots of fishing spots with good fishing. Sidewalks for walkers and bikers. Cross-country ski-ing if you enjoy that. The farm is lots of fun and I have seen piglets and calves born in the spring. My grandchildren love the barn and all the animals. This is the best park ever!!!

Great place to hike, bike, skateboard, walk, picnic, fish , play a game of baseball. Beautiful large semi wooded park. Has a working farm the kids can tour and see the animals. The park is very safe and well maintained.

Visiting Brighton, Michigan and decided to check out this park. I wish it were summer time but even in the winter it is beautiful! We must have seen 15 deer throughout the entrance of the park. Some were sitting, some were walking, and some were just standing there eating. We checked out the sledding hills and also the hockey rink on ice. Just a neat park to visit!

There is things to do in this park all year around. They have a 8 mile paved bike/run path that goes around the man made lake, a golf course, nature center with hiking trails, boat rental, two swim areas and plenty of eating areas where you can have summer picnics. In the winter there is great sledding and ice skating. I have run at this park for years.
