Summit Gardens (Howell)

The new children’s playground in downtown Howell is adorable and lots of fun! A mini maze, colorful tents and curving slides offer whimsical amusement for little ones. Let them run around until the train comes and then let them sit by and watch in delight as the train runs across the track. Don’t leave before taking a stop across the street for a milkshake from M Street Bakery.

Maple Beach Park (Milford)
