Ford Field Park in Northville Visitor’s Guide and Photos

Downtown Northville is just a hop, skip an jump away from Ford Field Park. Also nearby, guests can enjoy a visit to the historical Mill Race Village or the meandering Middle Rouge River. This six-acre park is most well known for an amazing wooden play structure, but also features a lighted ball diamond, 1/4 mile asphalt path, picnic tables and bench seating. Restroom facilities consist of a port-a-potty, so it might be best to “go” before you head out for a visit.
