About

A sanctuary for native plants and animals, Woodland Hills is a place for them to thrive within their natural habitat. Although managed primarily for the protection of these species and its natural features, the park also provides recreational, educational, scientific, and aesthetic benefits for the community of Farmington Hills. A placid park, it is a perfect place to observe quiet, relaxing, and peaceful activities such as nature walks, photography, appreciating the fauna and flora, and bird watching. Featuring 1.7 miles of trails on 74 acres, the natural trail runs adjacent to a creek tributary to the Rouge River, and crosses it at various locations. You will enjoy a journey through areas of tangled brush, young forest and mature forest, open fields, and wetlands that are home to a diverse variety of animal and plant life.
