Lenawee County Parks provide recreational, social, and cultural opportunities; while leading in the preservation, conservation, restoration, and promotion of the natural, scenic, and historical resources of Lenawee County.
County parks are open 8:00 a.m. to dusk from Memorial weekend through Labor Day; unless otherwise stated.  Prior to the regular season, the parks will be opened on weather permitting weekends.
