The Calhoun County Parks and Recreation Department is hosting a name unveiling and community walk at 10 a.m. on June 4, 2022 at the newly completed park in Albion Township at 10750 28 Mile Rd, Albion MI.
After the unveiling, a 2-mile group walk will take place from the county park trailhead to Victory Park and back.
The newest County park hosts 65 acres of scenic, restored prairie habitat and woodlands, along with a paved trail, kiosk, and benches. The park also serves as a trailhead for the Iron Bell Trail, Albion River Trail, and the North Country Trail.
This park offers proximity to Albion College’s campus, the Nancy G. Held Equestrian Center, Whitehouse Nature Center, the Kalamazoo River and downtown Albion. A shared hope in the community is that this trailhead will become a welcoming and dynamic recreational use area, which will increase awareness and public access to many new opportunities. The development of this park is funded by Albion College, Kalamazoo River Recreational Foundation, Calhoun County Parks Millage, and Michigan DNR.
A press release will be issued after the event with the name of the new park.
