Woodcrest Nature Park
Created with a Tax Increment Reinvestment Zone that included the Auburn Hills of Woodcrest, Regent properties pledged the property and $300,000 dollars to the city for the creation of this park that would serve as an amenity (and flood control device) for all of Woodcrest and Auburn Hills of the Woodcrest subdivisions. The park itself is located at 11021 Forest Pass Court and can be accessed off of Forest Bluff from Toepperwein Road. When it was officially opened on June 1, 2009, approximately 32 acres, most being natural wooded areas, made the park a favorite for the surrounding residents. The walking and jogging trails are thoughtfully looped to get you back to the starting area with several trails and picnic tables, many of them shaded, so you can stop and enjoy nature with your dining experience. The proximity of the restroom to the playground area is especially convenient for those accompanying small children. This playground offers very unique and challenging activities including a large climbing rock, swings, two monster slides, sit and spin rides, elevated platforms with shade canopies, bridges between platforms, numerous play panels, and so forth. Even the state-of-the-art artificial turf playground surface adds a special dimension to this one of a kind park amenity and safe and convenient workout stations for people of all ages.
