564. Bloomer Park – June 4, 2022 – Rochester Hills, MI

Bloomer Park, a sweet sojourn in the midst of suburbia!

The Rochester Hills-based park, established in 1924, boasts 200 acres of natural beauty and multiple amenities: volleyball nets; a sledding hill; playground and picnic areas; and trails designated for running, hiking, and mountain biking. Restroom facilities are in abundance – though only open seasonally.

Those trails: they’re the reason I was at Bloomer Park! They made up the route of the Bark & Brew 5K, an event benefitting Leader Dogs for the Blind (which culminated with afternoon festivities – and a free beer! – at Griffin Claw Brewing’s Rochester Hills location). Running 3.2 miles on those undulating, root-peppered trails was no joke! But doing it for a good cause, while soaking up Bloomer Park’s beauty? That was very much worth it.
