MI Big Green Gym

Good news! MI Big Green Gym is back. Passes will be valid for state parks, state forests trails, and more than 20 additional community recreational agencies. Check out passes at the Library beginning May 23.

State Parks are about so much more than camping – and this year the Department of Natural Resources has partnered with Blue Cross Blue Shield and the Michigan Recreation and Park Association to let Michigan know. Through a campaign called MI Big Green Gym, the three organizations are offering information and events designed to get Michigan residents to think of state and local parks as destinations for affordable fun and fitness.

Livonia Public Library is a participant in the Big Green Gym program. details

Michigan Activity Passes

Library users with a valid library card from one of Michigan’s nearly 400 public libraries can print a pass, either from home or at the library, to one of the nearly 60 participating institutions at the Michigan Activity Pass website. Some cultural partners offer complimentary or reduced price admission; others, discounts in their gift shop or other exclusive offers for MAP pass holders only. Each Michigan Activity Pass expires within one week from the date it is printed.
