Sterling Heights offers hundreds of relaxing fun and rewarding family activities and immensely popular annual special events.
Things To Do
Dodge Park is the place to be in Sterling Heights. From an outdoor ice rink in winter months to a state-of-the-art splash park in the summer and walking paths, playgrounds and picnic areas for all the months in between. Skaters, BMX bikers and bladers can hit the slops at the skate park too!
Get out the house and wear the kids out at Urban Air. The indoor amusement center features trampolines, rock climbing, virtual reality gaming and an urban warrior course. The highlight is the sky rider indoor coaster, it allows riders to soar overhead all the attractions of the facility with a bird’s eye view.
