River East Recreation Area

River East Recreation Area is the newest Township park, with the land having been recently acquired with the assistance of a grant from the Michigan Natural Resources Trust Fund.  The park is situated along the east banks of the Boardman River across from the Boardman Valley Nature Preserve.


Since 2021, recent improvements to the park include a gravel parking area and pavilion.  There is also a hiking trail leading down to the Boardman River.  This park is anticipated to see additional investment in improvements over the next few years, which may include space for a dog park and additional trails.


There is one picnic pavilion at this park, which may be reserved for events such as family reunions and company picnics.  The Park Reservation Application is available on the Parks and Recreation page.
