Detroit Outdoor Recreation

Around the city, you can find many things to do relating to outdoor recreation. Now obviously Detroit is a big urban city, so of course you can go biking around the city (maybe near the River Walk, or Belle Isle), but what if you want to do some skiing? Well there are many places close to the city that can satisfy the outdoor person in you. The area has different types of weather all year 'round, so naturally there are activities for every type of season. From skiing, to waterparks, to bking, you have a lot to choose from. So take a look below for an array of outdoor recreation activities around the city.

For summertime fun, why not check out some of the waterparks in and around the city? Michigan summers can get quite hot and humid at times, so heading to a waterpark could be the perfect way to cool off. (Page coming soon!)
