COMING SOON TO NANKIN MILLS INTERPRETIVE CENTER
Starting in March 2019, the lobby of the Nankin Mills Interpretive Center will be renovated with new displays and information! It is an exciting project for Wayne County Parks so please pardon our dust as we anticipate the work to be completed in Fall 2019.
The Nankin Mills Interpretive Center will still be open for customers to purchase picnic permits and dog park cards. In addition, the second and third floors of the museum will be open for the public to enjoy.
Please enter Nankin Mills from the front door porch located on Ann Arbor Trail or from the courtyard near the front door (closer to Hines Drive).
For more information, please call (734) 261-1990.
