NEW PARK IN ALBION NAME UNVEILING
The Calhoun County Parks and Recreation Department is hosting a name unveiling and community walk at 10 a.m. on June 4 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.
One of the speakers at the event was a representative of the Potawatomi tribe. She looked over the land and said she appreciated the restoration of the land and how people can walk on it. She said other peoples walked on it long before we arrived, and that other peoples will walk on it in the future.
More photos and videos coming soon about this program, and the ribbon cutting of the west trail extension in McAuliffe Park.
