Parks & Recreation

Within the Greater Romeo-Washington area you will find many wonderful ways to stay fit, breathe the fresh air, and enjoy the scenery.

“If you watch a game, it's fun. If you play it, it's recreation. If you work at it, it's golf.” - Bob Hope

The Macomb Orchard Trail is an avid way to spend leisure time throughout our multiple communities. This paved trail, originally converted from a railroad line, travels 23 miles through scenic woods and fields, stretching from Dequindre Road in the west to Richmond in the east. The trail is host to the Romeo2Richmond Race Half Marathon each September.

The Romeo-Washington-Bruce Parks & Recreation offers many ways to be a part of the community as they attract and encourage participation for all groups through positive opportunity with purpose of enriching the residents of our communities lives. With over 10 parks and ball fields, there is a multitude of ways to stay active.

Every year youth and families travel great distances to spend time at Simpson Park Camp as this is one of the oldest camp meetings in continuous service within the state of Michigan.

Skyline Camp & Retreat Center is on 156 acres of rolling hills with hardwood forest and whispering pines in Almont, Michigan. Skyline is a haven from city life and from the routine and stresses of everyday life. It provides the perfect venue for summer camp, for year-round retreats, off-site meetings, and seminars.

Each August, Armada hosts the Armada Fair, a true country fair where nearly 58,000 people attend over the course of this six-day event.

Two of the 11 Huron-Clinton Metroparks are located within the Greater Romeo-Washington Area. Stony Creek Metropark has 4,461 scenic-acres with opportunity for outdoor recreation all year long. You can spend an afternoon boating or swimming in the 500-acre Stony Creek Lake. Hike, bike, run or inline skate through lush woodlands. Enjoy a beautiful Nature Center, mountain bike skills course, disc-golf course, 18-hole regulation golf course, baseball diamonds, playgrounds, soccer fields, volleyball, and basketball courts. Picnic areas with reservable shelters, grills and comfort stations are located throughout the park. In the winter, walk, cross-country ski or snowshoe across its marked trails. Visit Wolcott Mill Metropark, a late-20th century working farm, then drive a few miles as you travel 100 years into the past to see historic Wolcott Mill, built in the 1840s and listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
