Feel like you’ve taken a trip out west when barely leaving your backyard. Carpenter Lake Nature Preserve is a unique gem in metro Detroit and you want to check it out but it’s not the only reason to visit Southfield this summer.
Where To Go
Add some new titles to your summer reading list and check out books at the Southfield Public Library. The Children’s Department is incredible and there is a cool new playground across the parking lot.
Where To Play
Southfield has a lot of great parks but Bauervic Woods Park is perfect for summer because it’s shaded! Sit back and let the kids play without worrying about the sun. Other favorite playgrounds to check out are Inglenook (farm themed) and Freeway Park (new).
Enjoy A Treat
Start your day with a sweet treat from Donut Bar + Coffee. The elaborate donuts are irresistable and they have great coffee to keep you going through the day.
