​Huron Parkway Nature Area is a 19-acre park located east of Huron Parkway south of Huron River Drive and north of Washtenaw Ave. Access to the park is from the sidewalk along Huron Parkway. Parking is available about a half-mile north at the Huron Hills Golf Course.

The area is an oak-hickory woodland with an open understory. It is a pretty place to wander through the woods, although there are no trails within the nature area. A pond and wetland on the western side of the park provide additions to the variety of plants and animals found in the Nature Area. Malletts Creek flows along the eastern border, and scenic overlooks of the channel can be found. This high quality area is undergoing restoration efforts by the staff and volunteers of Natural Area Preservation, including prescribed ecological burns and removal of non-native invasive plants.
