Elizabeth Park is quite unique, both geographically and historically. During the War of 1812, the Battle of Manguaga took place here when the Europeans arrived to colonize this area that was already occupied by the Wyandot. Over a century later, in 1919, an effort was made to turn the area into a public park. Thanks to financial support from the Michigan Department of Transportation, it became Michigan's first county park. Today, most of Elizabeth Park is located on an artificial island in the Detroit River. This allows for beautiful walking paths throughout the park, lovely picnic areas, and plenty of opportunities for fishing and boating.
Kick Off Summer Tento
Trenton's Summer Festival is the sign that summer has truly begun in Michigan. Held annually each June, this festival takes place in downtown Trenton. Along Jefferson Road, between Maple and Harrison, over 150 arts and crafts displays are set up for visitors to browse. The streets are also lined with the very best local food vendors. You will find a downtown stage, where you can catch free live shows, ranging from rock concerts to magicians. Make sure to bring the little ones too, as there is a designated kids area where fun activities will be held all weekend long.
