Thayer's Corner Nature Area is one of the unique and beautiful parks in Northville Township. Located on the outskirts of the community, it provides the look and feel of "up north Michigan." Available to community residents are trails for walking, hiking or horseback riding, community gardens, picnic benches, and wildlife.
There is now a new picnic shelter with stone fireplace. The nature area is available for community events and can be scheduled for a small fee by contacting us. Thayer's Corner Nature Area has been developed as a "labor of love" by the Friends of Thayer's Corner Nature Area and is financed by Northville Township. We invite residents to enjoy the park, walk the trails or plant a garden, but ask that you leave only your footprints.
The Historic Barn and Picnic Shelter are available on our website on the Rental Information page. The historic barn and picnic shelter can be rented for birthday parties, showers, or other special events and MUST BE scheduled in advance.
The attached video was made at Thayer's Garden in 2015. It was a picture taken by one of our gardeners every week and the yield that corresponded to that week. Thank You!

The nature area is cared for by volunteers of the park and is a not-for-profit organization. your donation of time would be greatly appreciated.
At that time, your garden should be cleaned of large plants, tomato cages, bricks, stones, fences or whatever else you have placed within your garden. Please put garden debris at the BACK of the dumpster and NOT in the trash cans.

$50 for a 25’ x 25’ plot.
$45 for a 12.5 x 12.5’ plot
