Mud Day 2017

Mud Day will take place on Tuesday, July 11, 2017 from 11:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m. at Nankin Mills Park in Westland.

Wayne County Parks is set to transform Nankin Mills Park into a 75’ x 150’ giant mud pit on Tuesday, July 11 from 11:00 a.m. until 1:00 p.m. Children ages 12 and younger will have the opportunity to get down and dirty at one of the messiest playgrounds Southeast Michigan has ever seen!

Thousands of children, who will be separated into two age groups: ages 4 and younger and ages 5-12, will charge into the mud to participate in fun filled activities, such as mud limbo and wheelbarrow races. The 2017 King and Queen will be crowned after the games are over.

The Western Wayne Hazemat Team will be on site to help rinse the kids off at the end of the event. Parents are encouraged to bring towels. Plastic bags will be provided to ensure that all dirty clothes are properly contained for the trip home.

Nankin Mills Park is located on Hines Drive, just east of Ann Arbor Trail in Westland.

Mud Day is a free event and no pre-registration is required.
