Macomb County

The county has a strong connection to the outdoors being home to more than 130 parks covering 12,000 acres. The four major public parks -- Freedom Hill County Park, Macomb Orchard Trail, Lake St. Clair Metropark and Stoney Creek Metropark each celebrate unique natural assets of our local communities.
