When we asked what your favorite parks were, quite often we heard about Boulan park in Troy. So we visited the park so we could share our experience with you. While Boulan doesn't make the top ten, it is a nice place to visit and offers a lot of amenities to local families.
Boulan Park is located on the weest side of Crooks Road between Big Beaver and Wattles Roads at 3671 Crooks Rd in Troy. The park is over 63 acres and offers a wide variety of recreation facilities including three ball diamonds, eight lighted tennis courts, five soccer fields, two sand volleyball courts, two barrier-free play structures, and a 1.25 mile paved walking path.
Boulan also offers the convenience of two picnic shelters, restrooms and concession stand operating in season and parking for up to 451 vehicles.
Overall the park was clean and fun for the kids. It is huge and allows for a lot of space for the kids to run and play.
We did notice a bit of wear and tear on some of the play structures and on the foam under the structures, but nothing too serious. The girls had a wonderful time checking everything out. The only drawback is that the swings are quite a distance from the structure and I was glad there was two of us there to watch the girls, because the space was so large.
