Note: I traveled to Erie Metro Park on March 21st 2020, the weekend before the Shelter in Place Order for Michigan was issued. While I plan on coming back to this lovely park in the future, I feel that it may be best if I stick to areas that are closer to home for now.
I was no older than 10 or 11 the last time I was at this particular park. At first, I thought, “hey this will be cool, going to a part of Michigan that I have yet to visit. But when I spoke with my father later that day I was informed that I had been to Lake Erie Metro Park already. Part of reason why I do not remember coming here initially is because I came by canoe. The Huron River and The Detroit River flow through the park area as they empty out into Lake Eeire. I don’t recall much from my childhood trip to here other than it being hot and getting sunburn.
Flash forward to March 2020. I drove about an hour to get to the park. My goal for this outing, like every other outing I have was to capture some cool landscape shots. And Lake Erie Metro Park did not disappoint!
There are trails that you can walk that has more scenic and nature stuff which I will explore the next time I go to Lake Erie Metro Park. There was also a playground for kids to play on but due to Covid-19 the playground equipment was taped off. This park also has a marina where you can launch your boat. Perhaps someday I’ll have a boat of my own but I’ll stick to the land for now.
