Parks and Recreation

The Pittsfield community is home to beautiful parks and local sports teams for all ages. Pittsfield distinguishes itself from other towns in its ongoing effort to improve and expand public parks. For example in 2002, the city acquired 535 acres of land, which includes parts of the Huron and Saline River, now known as the Pittsfield Preserve. The Park Commission hopes to create more nature observation trails in the Pittsfield Preserve that would allow community members a better glimpse into the woods, wetlands and meadows. Lillie Park - a gorgeous family-friendly park featuring miles of ADA nature trails – used to be an abandoned quarry until it was acquired and repurposed. Currently underway, community leaders drafted a plan for a non-motorized green belt, the Lohr-Textile Greenway, which would connect Pittsfield to Saline and Ann Arbor and enhance the links between residential neighborhoods. The Pinckney State Recreation area is a great place for a day hike or horse ride, featuring beach volleyball courts, and great fishing in any of the interconnecting lakes. Golf courses of varying difficulty flank the Pittsfield community, such as the Stonebridge Golf Club just a short drive away from prime real estate in Pittsfield, MI.
