West Michigan Parks

There are hundreds of parks in the West Michigan area so finding places for the kids to play, go for a walk, enjoy the outdoors, and take a bike ride are virtually endless.

Not everyone lives near a park so often non-residents to a particular area have to travel to have access to a park. Some parks offer more than others and that can also attract parents to travel a little bit to take their kids to a park that has more to offer.
