Firefighters Park in Troy #OaklandCounty

Firefighters Park is a 96-acre park in Troy, Michigan.  Located at 1800 W. Square Lake, it is on the North Side of Square Lake Road between Crooks and Coolidge.  This is one of five community parks in Troy which also include Boulan Park, Flynn Park, Jaycee Park, and Raintree Park.  Firefighters Park hosts a mix of open space and wooded areas. The Rouge River runs through the park offering a gorgeous view and the opportunity for shore fishing.

Firefighters park in Troy has one barrier-free play medium sized play structure and one small vehicle play structure.  The medium sized structure has a couple of slides, fun climbing elements and astroturf surface.  The structure is okay.  It feels like it was built to keep children entertained while other family members are engaged in sports activities.  I have seen much more impressive structures at neighborhood parks in Troy.
