Huron-Clinton Metroparks is seeking public input on a grant project that will help bring improvements to areas of Oakwoods Metropark.

A Michigan Natural Resources Recreation Grants program will allow the parks to improve accessibility to amenities surrounding the Oakwoods Metropark Nature Center.

The proposed project involves the development of an accessible trail and an update to the surrounding amenities.

This includes parking lot improvements with eight, barrier free space additions in two locations, building entry and restroom modifications, and existing surface removal and new aggregate surface added on the Split Log Trail.

Also in the plan is a redesign and replacement of the observation deck and improvements to picnic tables, drinking station, benches and dog waste station, as well as area signage.

The project will help meet several goals that were laid out in the Willow and Oakwoods Metropark Master Plan, according to Huron-Clinton Metroparks.

The master plan was adopted by the Metroparks Board of Commissioners in June 2018.
