Engage! Recreation Guide

In line with the most recent Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHSS) Epidemic Order, the Novi Parks, Recreation and Cultural Services Department will pause all leagues, classes, and facility reservations beginning November 16 until December 8. Our team will be working to reschedule programs to resume after December 8 and with coaches, instructors, etc. to implement virtual options as appropriate. Information will be shared with participants as it becomes available. We will continue to monitor the situation and follow the directives of the MDHHS.
