Lower Huron Metropark is a park in the Huron-Clinton system of metro parks in Metro Detroit. The park covers 1,258 acres (5.09 km2) along the Huron River and has hike-bike trails and two self-guided nature trails. In the winter, the park has ice skating ponds and cross-country skiing. The park also has a water slide amusement facility, the Turtle Cove Family Aquatic Center. There is a 27-site campground, a group campground and canoe camping in the park. [1] [2] [3]

Situated in the flood plain of the Huron River, some parts of the park may flood, especially when Belleville Dam releases excess water.
