North Bay Park is a very nice, 139 acre park located on the West end of Ford Lake in Ypsilanti. It is a popular park for walkers, fishers, and wild life observers. It features a wooden board walk and dirt trail system that meanders through woods, wetlands and along the shores the lake. The main trail is circular and goes around the shore of the lake, wetlands, and then passes over various bridges over the water and is a nice one mile long.

The park is popular, but never over-crowded. You'll almost always find several people fishing along the wooden board walk. And many times I go there I see wild life observers with their professional cameras. Among my photos are a barn swallow bird. Canadian geese, swans, fish jumping among the lily pads, and herons are among the other wild life. If you go at the right time on a sunny day, you can see dozens of turtles sunning themselves on dead branches poking out of the water.

This park is staffed and gated during the park season.
