It's on Broad Street aka (Milford Road) in Holly,Michigan
[The Village of Holly is located in northwest Oakland County in the triangle created by I-75 and US-23. Three exits from I-75 lead into Holly: North Holly Road, Grange Hall Road and East Holly Road. One exit from US-23—Owen Road—takes you east through Fenton to a dead end at LeRoy Street, where you have to make a jog because the Shiawassee River and its wetland block a straight through route. For further specific directions, see below.]
From the North (Grand Blanc area):
Take North Holly Road south for 8 miles. Saginaw Street is the name of the main north-south road in the village limits of Holly and it is the same road as North Holly Road. So if you arrive via North Holly Road, proceed straight through the village going south. Jog one block east on Maple Street and then left on Broad Street directly before the railroad tracks. One-third mile on Broad Street and you’re there.
From the East on Grange Hall Road (Holly State Recreation area):
Take Grange Hall Road into Holly, a distance of about 4 miles. Turn left at Saginaw Street and proceed south as in the directions given above.
From the East on East Holly Road (I-75 or Dixie Highway):
Take East Holly Road into Holly, a distance of about 3.5 miles. At the railroad tracks, make an immediate left onto Broad Street. In one-third of a mile (past the fire station) you will come to WaterWorks Park.
From the South via Milford Road:
Milford Road can be picked up off I-696 or off M-59. It is basically a north-south road although it jogs here and there. It changes its name just outside Holly in northwest Oakland County, and that’s the junction you want to look for. CSX Railroad tracks angle across the road at a three-way stop light, just after a hard left curve. Take the road to the right (north). In half a mile you are at the Millpond and WaterWorks Park is on your left.
From the West (Fenton or Linden area):
Take Owen Road east to where it ends at a three-way light in the historic section of Fenton. Turn right (south) on LeRoy Street and proceed three blocks to South Holly Road. Turn left (east again) and travel 3+ miles to the three-way light at the CSX Railroad Tracks. Turn left (north) and go ½ mile on Milford/Broad Street. You’ve reached the Millpond and WaterWorks Park is on your left.
