Royal Oak is home to an extensive range of flora and it is often called the "City of Trees" -…
Maybury is one of our favorite places to visit throughout the year. From nature walks and horseback rides to animal visits and seasonal activities – there’s plenty of fun things for your family to to do in Northville.
Get back to nature and explore the trails of Maybury State Park. The natural trails are of varying length and you can find something short for tired legs. There are ‘hidden’ playgrounds and a great fishing pond with private docking options available. A State Park Pass is required for entry. An annual pass is $12 for a vehicle and good for the year.
Maybury Farm is the perfect place to visit animals, let the kids run around and participate in seasonal fun. Beginning in March it is open on the weekends to see the animals and Maple Sugaring activities are available later in the month. During the summer, sign up for story time. In the fall grab cider and donuts before you make your way through the corn maze. Admission is $5 per person. Kids under 2 are FREE.
The Trailhead playground can be accessed from the Park or Farm parking lots. It was built in 2019 and a local favorite. The state-of-the-art inclusive playground has a large structure, swings, a zipline and adorable firehouse/truck climber.
When your kid wants a pony ride, take them to Maybury Riding Stables. With no experience required you can hop on a horse and go out on the trail for a group ride. Little riders can go around the stable for only $5 for 2 laps.
