Parks

The Courtland Township Park is located at 7450 – 14 Mile Road in Rockford, Michigan, behind the Township facility. The park offers a playground for children, a pavilion, nature trail, and sports activities, including a baseball field, beach volleyball and upcoming in 2012, a basketball court with basketball hoop.

Other parks available in Courtland Township :

Myers Lake Park – Supported by Kent County, this park hosts a children’s playground, public beach for fishing and swimming, picknicking (shelter available to reserve), parking, and restrooms. No public boat launch is available on Myers Lake.

Luton Park – This underdeveloped trail system supported by Cannon Township and Kent County is becoming famous for mountain biking and its easy access for parking on Kies Street.

Brower Lake Nature Conservancy – Located by Big Brower and Little Brower Lake, this nature preserve offers 63 acres of beautiful mature oak forest and wetlands with unpaved nature trails.

White Pine Trail – The Fred Meijer White Pine Trail is Michigan’s longest rail/trail stretching a distance of 92 miles on the former Grand Rapids and Indiana rail bed. The trail reaches from the north end of Grand Rapids (just south of the 5th/3rd Ballpark) to the city of Cadillac. Communities along the trail in the township area include Rockford, Belmont, and Cedar Springs.

Rockford Area Parks – Close to our township is the city of Rockford, which has more than 30 acres of land and waterfront property for public recreation.

New trail development in Courtland Township could potentially connect to Myers Lake Park, Luton Park and/or the White Pine Trail in the city of Rockford.
