PARKS & RECREATION

 

Grand River Riverfront Park
The jewel of Lowell Charter Township, our 80 acre Grand River Riverfront Park (including two islands) is on the south shore of the Grand River off Grand River Drive between Lowell and Ada. We have a canoe launch, two softball fields, a lacrosse field, 8 soccer fields and a playground with equipment designed for ages 4 to 12. We have a mile-long paved nature/walking path, a scenic overlook and fishing pier on the Grand River, one large picnic shelter with restroom facilities and one smaller one without.  The park is open to the public every day from 8 AM to dusk, except for days that snow or water make driving in the park unsafe.  Restrooms are closed from late October until late March. Contact the Township Office to make arrangements for special events.
