Lutz County Park At A Glance

Lutz County Park is a true gem that is located in Deerfield Township, just skirting southern Genesee County.

Taking a stroll, you can easily forget your fast-paced life

Opening in 2008, the 300-acre farm was a gift from Mr. Owen Lutz.  Prior to his death, Owen Lutz laid out a one of a kind trail system with amazing views.

Park Origins:
The land was bequeathed to Livingston County in 2005 by Owen Lutz. Lutz County Park was open to public recreation use in 2008.

Location:
The park entrance is on Lutz Road, just north of the intersection of Lutz and Cohoctah Roads in Deerfield Township (NE Livingston County).

Amenities:
100 acres of public recreation use. 1.3-mile trail system provides opportunities for users to experience high-quality natural areas, scenic views, and wildlife and its habitat while at the same time passing by farmfields.  Also available are picnic tables, benches, nature interpretive signs, trail head display, a parking area and restroom.

Other:
Lutz County Park is adjacent to Oak Grove State Game Area, creating a larger contiguous expanse of acreage for the preservation of natural features, wildlife habitat and the South Branch of the Shiawassee River.


Lutz County Park offers the perfect stopover location for migrating birds, especially Sandhill Cranes, which are often seen in the Spring and Fall.

Beautiful Red-Tail Hawks can often be seen flying overhead.

The pond on the property is a perfect habitat for frogs, turtles and even salamanders.

In the Spring, the restored meadow is a wonderful area to see a splash of wildflowers.
