Best free things to do in Sterling Heights?

I'm going to be in Sterling Heights next month and will be on a pretty tight budget. I'm looking for the best free and inexpensive things to check out! I love the outdoors, art, museums, you name it. Thanks!

Hi! If you haven't been here before, Sterling Heights is a suburb of Detroit. Everything is relatively close here.  A 45-minute drive gets you just about anywhere. If you like concerts, check out the Freedom Hill Amphitheatre and DTE Energy Music Theatre.  Both offer lawn seats which aren't too expensive.  There is also the Meadow Brook Music Festival, an outdoor concert venue, and Meadow Brook Hall & Gardens, a mansion once owned by Matilda Dodge whose husband was a lumber magnate. They typically have a summer tour program.  Another great place to visit is The Henry Ford Museum and Greenfield Village.  The Detroit Zoo is worth a visit as is the Detroit Institute of Arts. The Zoo is in a suburb, the museum is in Detroit.  If you can splurge a bit, take in a Detroit Tiger's baseball game at Comerica Park.  It's a great ballpark and you can usually find reasonable tickets at StubHub a day or two in advance. Six Rivers Regional Land Conserv offers kayak and biking excursions.  Check out their website (https://www.sixriversrlc.org/) and say hello to my high school friend Betsy!  Not sure if you can rent equipment or have to bring your own which may be an issue for you.  Hope this helps. Let me know if you have specific activities in mind and I'll do some research.  At least I'll recognize what's worth your time and what isn't.

Dodge Park is wonderful to take walks and picnics. You can see a lot of nature. There is a Farmers Market at Dodge Park on Thursdays in the summer from 3pm to 9pm. There is also a free concert on Thursday nights. Bring a lawn chair and visit all the food trucks. You're welcome to bring your own cooler with drinks. If you get up to go to get something to eat, no one will bother your chair. The annual Sterling fest is July 28, 29 & 30th and also at Dodge Park. There will be a beer tent, craft booths, carnival rides and many bands & concerts. The concerts are always free.
