Delhi Charter Township Parks

Delhi Township has seven parks totaling almost 100 acres, which include a beachfront swimming area and four pavilions to rent.  For pavilion rentals call the Parks & Recreation Department at 694-1549.

Sam Corey Senior Center

Designed for activities and fellowship, Holt's beautiful new Sam Corey Senior Center was also built with an environmental conscience--the first LEED-certified (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) building constructed for Delhi Township.  A geothermal heating/cooling system and a "live" roof are just a couple examples of what makes this a "green" building.

Veterans Memorial Gardens

Veteran's Memorial Gardens is Delhi's newest park.  This passive park consists of 5.5 acres and features a Veteran's Memorial as the centerpiece.  The memorial represents each branch of the military.  Other prominent features include a cascading water fountain and an amphitheater.  Veteran's Memorial Gardens has beautiful plantings, pergolas and vine covered trellises.

Eventually there will be several different gardens including a butterfly garden.  Veteran's Memorial Gardens has two points of entry.  One is located behind the Community Services Center on Aurelius Road and the other on Cedar Street.

Bike and Skate Park

The Bike and Skate Park was built to provide area youth with a designated place for freestyle skating and biking.  The park is located at the southeast corner of the Junior High School (OLD Holt High School) parking lot.  The 16,500 square foot park is designed with approximately 10 main areas, mobile for alternative configurations, accommodating skateboards, inline skates and bikes.  The park is visible to the school faculty, students, parents, Aurelius Road commuters and sport field spectators.

Centennial Farms Park

This 10 acre park is located on Aurelius Road and Garden Gate Drive.  A neighborhood park, serving the Centennial Farms subdivision area, includes a playground, pathways, and lots of open space.

Deadman's Hill Park

This 13 acre park, with its entrance located on south Cedar Street, south of Holt Road, is the center of winter recreation in Delhi Township.  The drastic topography of this site is atypical of the township as a whole.  This topography provides one of the best sledding hills in the area.  At the base of the main hill is a pond, which is cleared for ice skating.

Jaycee Park

This 2 acre neighborhood park is located at the end of Wemple Street, south of Tolland Avenue.  It is a small facility designed to serve the needs of the local residents.  The entire area is wooded and features a playground and picnic area.

Kiwanis Park

This 14 acre park, located at the end of Maple Street, south of Sycamore Street, is devoted primarily to active recreation.   Kiwanis Park features eight tennis courts, two softball fields, and two basketball courts.  For other recreational pursuits, the park provides a wooded playground and picnic area.  The picnic area has a pavilion to serve large groups, such as family reunions, and is available on a rental basis.  Restrooms, electricity, running water, and parking are also provided.

Valhalla Park

This 45 acre site at the corner of Keller and Pine Tree Roads is the township's largest and most highly developed park.   Valhalla features a wooded area, open fields, a pond, and a lake, all of which are used to provide diverse year round recreation.

During the summer months, a beach and swimming are the focal points of the park.  Next to this area are bathrooms and changing rooms.  Adjacent to the beach is a large, semi-wooded, picnic area and a new playground that was finished in 2009 .  Other warm weather facilities include three softball diamonds, a nature trail, and fishing areas on both the lake and the pond.   A large group picnic pavilion is also available on a rental basis.

For the winter sports enthusiasts, Valhalla offers ice skating on the small pond, ice fishing on the lake, and cross country ski trials throughout the park.  There is ample parking year-round and full utility service available.
