Parks & Nature
Potential animal sightings. Located right behind our property, but easier access via Riverwood Drive. A sidewalk "loop" goes around the neighborhood and through to Skyline High School if you are wanting a gentle walk.

Located directly across the road is Bird Hills Nature Park. It doesn't look like anything from the house, but if you cross the road, you will be able to see a small entrance leading to trails through 164 acres of woods down to Huron River. As you follow the trail away from M-14 highway, you really won't realize that you are in the middle of town. Enjoy!

Several restaurants located downtown including Seva, Isalita, Aventura, Tios, Prickly Pear, Pretzel Bell, Knights. Walk around and check out the menu and scene. There are also several ice-creameries for dessert - Kilwin's chocolates (smell of fresh waffle cones is divine), and further away, Washtenaw Dairy.
