Summer will be here before we know it and that means trips to beaches and waterparks. We all enjoy some…
After a year long closure, the State of Michigan’s Outdoor Adventure Center in downtown Detroit re-opens on Friday, July 16th.
Experience exciting outdoor adventures with hands-on activities, exhibits and simulators – walk behind and touch a waterfall, step into a fishing boat and reel in a big fish, hit the trail on a mountain bike or snowmobile, and much more. At the OAC, you’ll learn about how the DNR manages state parks, forests, wildlife and fish as you climb the roots and explore the canopy of a massive bur oak tree, hop aboard a real airplane, and see what’s swimming in the aquarium. The two-story interactive museum is great for all ages.
Admission is $5 for guests 13 and older, guests between the ages of 2 and 12 are $3.
Afterwards, take a stroll along the Dequindre Cut to play on natural play structures, grab some lemonade and explore Eastern Market!
Outdoor Adventure Center // 1801 Atwater St, Detroit, MI 48207
Hours: Friday 10 am to 3pm; Saturday 10am to 5pm; Sunday 12pm to 5pm
