Hickory Glen Park

This 155 acre park is located on Glengary and South Commerce Roads. A non-motorized pathway connecting many of our parks and adjacent communities runs through the park. Benches dot the landscape and provide respite for those on the non-motorized pathway. This Spring, William Armstrong completed his Eagle Scout project along this pathway, erecting numbered emergency signs with GPS locator coordinates. This information was complied with the fire department. When completed this pathway network will allow citizens to go from Pontiac to Kensington Metro Park. Currently, the pathway originates at the Ralph C. Richardson Center, through Hickory Glen and Maple Glen parks on into Wixom and from there into South Lyon.

Off of the non-motorized pathway through Hickory Glen park the members of The Motor City Mountain Biking Association, have built and maintain mountain bike trails with the approval of the Parks and Recreation Committee. Regular and special event rides are held by the club on trails designed for beginner to advance skill levels so all ages and abilities can enjoy riding together. Trail signs indicating direction and skill levels have been erected to assist riders along the trails. Event schedules and maps of the trails are available on the MCMBA website.

The Lakes Area Athletic League has built and maintains the baseball diamonds in this park and the Hawks Youth football team has developed a beautiful stadium with concession stand, handicap accessible restrooms and bleachers. All of these facilities have been constructed by the community groups through the generous donations from the community, volunteers from the leagues and families of the players. The league works cooperatively with the Hawks youth football, Michigan Mountain Bike Association and other community groups to schedule and maintain the fields located in this park. Playground equipment is available near the baseball fields for the use of the team siblings and other spectators. The Parks and Recreation Committee is exploring new playground equipment for this park.
