One of Wixom’s Favorite Wooded Areas: Kensington Metropark
One of the most popular wooded areas in the Wixom area is Kensington Metropark. This 5,345-acre Metropark is build around a 1,200-acre lake, Kent Lake. The Lake boasts many inlets and small bays, that make the lake a popular destination for canoeing, kayaking and fishing.
The Metropark also boasts several large wooded areas, with miles of hiking trails that meander through the trees and deep into the woods. The Park boasts over 20 different species of trees, from native species like the Maple and Dogwood to non-native but popular trees such as the Beech and American Elm. The Park is a favorite place in the fall, as the forested areas turn to brilliant oranges and reds, bringing a bit of northern Michigan to the Wixom area.

Kent Lake also offers two large beaches for visitors to enjoy, as well as opportunities for those who want to go sailing, canoeing or fishing.
