Anyone interested in joining the Loch Alpine Garden Club is welcome to contact Roberta Nerison-Low: RNLOW@comcast.net, or Adrienne Royce: firstname.lastname@example.org. We host informational programs and maintain the pollinator garden below the recreation field at the lake park. The Loch Alpine Garden Club has a Facebook page
where you can find out more about what we do. We welcome anyone interested in learning about gardening, or anyone who just welcomes a chance to meet new people while gardening with us in Loch Alpine’s lake park! No experience necessary!

Construction was initiated in the spring of 2021 on a one-mile segment from Zeeb Road to Delhi Metropark, with plans for the fourth B2B bridge over the Huron River. Construction bids are being solicited, and it is anticipated that the project will begin construction this summer. Not only will this complete a total of 4.4 miles of continuous trail east of Dexter toward Ann Arbor, it will connect all three Metroparks within Washtenaw County!
