Milliken State Park Wetlands

Located at: 1900 Atwater St. Detroit, MI 48207

The second phase of the Milliken State Park opened on December 1, 2009 and includes a wetlands demonstration area which shows how wetlands act as nature's water filtration system. Interpretative signs explain how the wetlands naturally removes pollutants from the water and then returns it to the Detroit River as clean water - all without going to a wastewater treatment plant.
