The Friends of Novi Parks is involved in the acquisition, protection, and development of parks and open spaces within the city of Novi. Since our founding in 2001, we have assisted the City of Novi in securing over $1 million dollars in grants to acquire parkland in the City of Novi. We are also actively engaged in community events that help improve our parks. Membership is open to anyone interested in Novi's current and future open space, parks and recreation facilities.


The Friends of Novi Parks has been actively involved in several parkland acquisition projects in the City of Novi. These include the city's successful 2005 and 2007 Michigan Natural Resources Trust Fund grants. This support has included funding biological studies, property appraisals, coordinating community support and assisting with grant applications.

2007 MNRTF grant for $281,300 for Novi to acquire 16 acres of parkland

2005 MNRTF grant for $846,338 for Novi to acquire 51 (now 54) acres of parkland
