Harris Nature Center: Harris Nature Center’s property was purchased with Land and Water Conservation funds in 1986 from Paul and Vila Allen for $240,000. The center is housed in a 45-year old house that was converted in 1997 into a public nature center that offers environmental activities and outdoor recreation opportunities focusing on protecting, promoting and interpreting the Red Cedar River. The Center is staffed by two full-time Naturalists and a variety of part-time staff and volunteers. This park includes restrooms, interpretive facilities, sidewalks, trails, picnic areas, and parking that are accessible to individuals with a disability.
Eastgate Park: Eastgate Park was purchased in 1986 with the assistance of a Land and Water Conservation Fund grant from the Michigan Department of Natural Resources. A trail-head sign and trail markers direct visitors along the 1.4 mile natural river trail. In 2002, a paved walkway was added from the parking lot to the pavilion. This park includes sidewalks, trails, picnic areas, and parking that are accessible to individuals with a disability.
Legg Park: Legg Park is located on the West side of Van Atta Road following almost ¾ mile along the South bank of the Red Cedar River. A portion of this park was developed with a gravel entry drive, pavilion, parking lot and trails with grant assistance from the Land and Water Conservation Fund.
