Green infrastructure

Livingston County is blessed with an abundance of recreational land and water. There are over 20,000 acres of state parks, Metro parks, recreational areas, game areas and high-quality natural areas. Water, in the form of lakes, streams and rivers, covers an additional 12,300 acres.

It’s the recreational paradise craved by young workers — the kind leaving the area because they can’t find jobs.
