Draper Twin Lake Park Trail Map

This 90-acre park was acquired in October 2005, with a generous portion of its value donated by Lee and Jean Draper. Opened to the public July 23, 2006, its rolling topography, shoreline, wetlands, and farmland are located between Inwood and Parks Roads, west of Dequindre.  In partnership with the US Fish & Wildlife Service, we are working to restore prairie to old agricultural fields here and at Charles Ilsley Park.

The park has great potential for recreational activities, including shore fishing, cross country skiing, hiking, and horseback riding. Its mowed paths provide excellent routes for bird and wildlife observation, including hawks, sandhill cranes (the tallest bird in Michigan), wild turkey and white-tailed deer. Parking is available near the intersection of Hadden and Inwood Roads, or near the park maintenance garage on Inwood Road.
