Ann Arbor Parks - Remerica Hometown Realtors

Fresh air and plenty of sunshine are just what the doctor ordered to help you and your family get through this tough period for our country and our state. While there are many things you can't do, Michigan's shelter-in-place directives do allow you to get outside and go for a walk, run, or for an enjoyable bike ride. Our REALTORS® are staying as active as possible and recommend the following places for those times when you need to get outside and get some air. All you have to do is remember to keep at least six feet of distance between you and everyone else and be sure to leave the parks by 10 pm when they close. 

  • Barton Pond Nature Area - W. Huron River Drive, Wines, MI 48105
    At 102 acres, the Barton Pond Nature Area is one of the largest public recreation areas in the region. Located along the Huron River and just a few miles from downtown, this fabulous nature area is an ideal spot to get away from big city life.
