The Novi Parks Foundation is governed by a volunteer Board of Directors. Those who serve on the Board give unselfishly of their time, talent and financial resources. Making an annual financial contribution is only part of their obligation. Serving on committees and recruiting others as volunteers, board members and donors has become routine. Providing professional assistance in the areas of legal, engineering, development, construction and financial planning is often offered to the organization as in-kind contributions. Volunteers from a variety of backgrounds and expertise provide additional support.
Novi Parks, Recreation and Cultural Services, a tax-funded city organization, cannot build and maintain a world-class parks system on its own. Private support is essential. Every dollar counts. Together, we will enrich the lives of our youth, strengthen our families, build our communities and empower our city. Together, we are building parks for life.
The value of your generous gift will leave a lasting legacy that will benefit your own life and the lives of others for generations. Cash gifts to the Foundation for individual parks and programs can include bequests by will, charitable gift annuity and more opportunities.
The Novi Parks Foundation raises money for the purpose of supporting park enhancements, recreational opportunities and scholarship programs for local children. We hope to raise funds to provide support and assistance to Novi Parks, Recreation, and Cultural Services as they work to maintain quality parks and provide high quality cultural and recreational programs. New event for 2015 is “Pour on the Shore”, beer and wine tasting.
Since its inception in 2004, the Foundation has provided:
Are you passionate about public spaces, recreational & cultural opportunities and the Novi community? Well so are we! The Novi Parks Foundation supports the City of Novi Parks, Recreation and Cultural Services Department through fundraising and advocacy. Thanks to our many community partners and supporters, the Parks Foundation has provided matching grant funds for city park projects, provided scholarships to youth and funded various park enhancements over the years. There are many ways to be involved and to support our efforts to make Novi an even better place to live, work and play…
Novi is fortunate to have so many diverse recreation opportunities and public spaces available for all ages, all activity levels, interests and abilities. It is our value and belief that park, recreation and cultural experiences connect people in meaningful ways–connections to nature.. to others… to ourselves and our community. Leisure time is serious business and we want Novi to continue to provide its residents with exceptional leisure time opportunities! Contact us to learn more about how you can support and be a part of the Novi Parks Foundation!
This Saturday (May 7th) is slated to be wonderful weather! It will be a great opportunity to come out and visit us at the 2016 Island Lake Spring Demo Day sponsored by the Motor City Mountain Bike Association and IMBA. We will be out there with a wealth of cycling industry leaders, talking about our involvement in the cycling community and our medical approach to bike fitting, injury prevention and performance optimization. Stop out and say hi!
Started in 2006 by local industry veteran (and friend) James Knight, the Island Lake Spring Bike Demo is now in its 11th year bringing the best bikes in the market to your trail. It’s a great chance to talk face to face with people who live the life: building, riding, and maintaining the bikes you want to own. Then, take a few out for a test spin on the road and trails at Island Lake, finding the bike that pulls at your heartstrings.
More details and an evolving list of vendors at http://mcmba.org/demo !
WE are very excited about our new perforated window coverings that were installed on our outside windows this past week. We worked very hard to showcase some of our local athletes and capture the essence of our clinical focus at Adams Sports Medicine & Physical Therapy.
One Soul Graphics in Livonia, MI (WEBSITE) did a great job pulling this project together, and now that the Michigan weather has finally begun to break, they seized the opportunity to put the large displays up effortlessly.
A huge shout out to some of our local athletes that were included in our shots:
Curious about the medical bike fitting process that we offer here at Adams Sports Medicine? Please give us a call or stop into the clinic.

It’s wintertime in Michigan. As outdoor athletes, we need to adapt to our surroundings. I was recently commissioned to write an article for Physical Therapy Products magazine. With so much to say and so little space, I do my best to identify some of the perspective we take as sports medicine specialists in the physical therapy world. If you are going to the annual APTA CSM meeting in California this week, you will see the magazine available throughout the convention. If you are less fortunate and remain here in Michigan in the cold and snow, then feel free to download a digital copy of the article found here: COLD WEATHER WARRIORS.
Winter is not a season, it’s an occupation.
As part of May being “National Bike Month”, the impetus to get out and ride your bike to work happens tomorrow!
Get out an ride. If it’s not tomorrow, then Monday. Not sure what route to take…? Try riding to your work on a saturday morning as a “dry run”. Drop off extra clothes or food at the beginning of the week.
If the logistics appear to be too great, figure out a solution. Excuses are easy. The reward for enjoying an activity that helps you, mentally and physically, is priceless.
And if you drive your car to work…watch out for the adults and kids on their bikes!
Best of luck for all of our sponsored athletes/patients competing at the first big race of the year, Barry-Roubaix!
