Tip: Get the Crazies Out – Head to the Park

We have so many wonderful parks around Mid-Michigan – and each year as a family we try to discover new ones.   Below is a list of parks that we frequent.   Click on each park’s name for a link to more information.

City Park (St. Johns)
Featuring large shaded play structures, climbing wall, playground equipment.    Park pavilions, nearby tennis courts, basketball courts, walking trails, and disc golf round out this all-inclusive local park.   Drop by this summer and play at the park’s splash pad.

Delta Mills Park (Lansing)
Featuring picnic shelters, several play structures, and a hill for sledding. A lot of green space makes for a great park to run around.
