Addison Township

Township Parks

Addison Township is an attractive area with its diverse topographical character.  Our parks assist in preserving our rural atmosphere.  You can experience that “up north” feeling, just minutes from your home.  Our community owns four parks which are all worth visiting.

  1. Addison Township Park is located on the east side of our Township Office Complex. It features playground equipment for elementary school age children and a picnic area.
  2. Labodie Park is seven acres that can found directly behind our Township Offices. It has a nice baseball field, sledding hill, gas fire pit and picnic table areas.  Just south of the park is the Michigan Nature Association’s Lakeville Swamp.
  3. Watershed Preserve Park is 231 acres located approximately one mile north of Leonard Village on Rochester Road. It features a large marked trail system for hiking.  You can also fish, picnic, or camp at one of two rustic campsites (camping reservations can be obtained from the Addison Township Offices 248-628-5409).  There is much to see in this park abundant in natural plant and wildlife.
  4. Lake George Nature Park is 82 acres and is located a little west of Leonard Village. Acquired in 2011, it is being developed similar to Watershed Preserve Park.  It will have a picnic area, trail system and a dock for fishing.  This undeveloped park is open now for those interested in woods, rustic trails and fishing.
