With the ability to still get outside during the Stay Home. Stay Safe. order, our staff have been checking out nearby outdoor spaces! We've asked each of them to document their experience -- take a look below to see where we've been exploring!
On some mornings, I head towards the Tittabawassee River and explore Dahlia Hill which has a nice view from atop the hill and you can glance in the windows at the wonderful artwork. From there, I walk along the Pere Marquette Rail Trail to visit the new overlook in Upper Emerson Park. Then I head downstream along the the river crossing Currie Bridge entering Chippewassee Park and setting foot on the Tridge. There are so many wonderful areas to explore within the City of Midland. That being said, I still enjoy visiting out nature preserves, but trying to limit my travels has opened up a whole new perspective on what nature abounds staying close to home.
