Busy as life can be, sometimes you just need to get away, right away. Welcome to the Genesee County Parks, Michigan's largest county park system. With more than 11,000 acres of woods, rivers, lakes, trails, beaches and campgrounds, getting away in the great outdoors is as close as one of the 21 Genesee Parks. When your routine starts to feel a little too routine, slip away to Mid-Michigan's favorite outdoor playground. It's just around the corner. At your Genesee County Parks.


Event Highlights

Christmas at Crossroads Holiday Magic
This is the place to make happy holiday memories! Come visit the Village when it's decorated with thousands of tiny sparkling lights, and take a festive ride through the wintry countryside on our beloved Huckleberry Railroad! You'll find villagers making vintage crafts and shops full of great gifts. Santa, himself, will be there to greet you! And there are several live shows each day in the Opera House included with your admission ticket. You'll love this month-long magical celebration that opens November 28 with a glorious fireworks show and continues through December 30.
For-Mar Shoe Years Day Event
Walk, ski, or shoe! No matter your choice you can start the New Year out actively at For-mar during our shoe Year's Day event. This statewide partnership between the Michigan Recreation and Park Association (MRPA), the Michigan DNR, and local parks and recreation agencies includes a one-mile hike, snowshoe or ski. We'll even have presentations on how to set and keep your New Year's resolutions. Come dressed weather appropriate. Please bring your own cross country skis and snowshoes if you have them. Some snowshoes will be available to check out on a first come, first served basis.
