Pierson Township Park

The Pierson Township Parks & Recreation Committee will SOON be working on plans and grant applications for a Pierson Township Park behind the township hall.  By generous donation, the township is in the process of acquiring 3 additional acres to be developed into a park!

A condition of the donation is to fence the area - so Fundraising shall begin!  Watch for how you can help grow the fund and see a PARK for the Township!

In 2017 Pierson Township created a Parks & Recreation Committee.  The committee meets on the second Thursday of each month during the spring-summer months at 4:30 pm. 

 

The 2021-2025 Parks & Recreation Plan was adopted on January 12, 2021 at the Special Meeting/Public Hearing.  Big thanks to the committee members for their hard work in putting the community ideas and dreams into a written livable document.  The Parks & Recreation Plan will allow the township to apply for grant dollars for creation of a park(s) in Pierson Township. We will also be starting fundraising and project planning starting with the first meeting of the year on April 8, 2021 at 4:30 pm (new time).  

Watch for developments tot he parking lot on Amy School & Pierson Road for safety while using the Village of Pierson Ball Fields on Amy School & Pierson Rd. Thank you to Republic Services for being a great neighbor!

Parks & Recreation Committee will begin fundraising and park planning for Spring 2022.  Join us at a meeting if you have ideas or want to help! 

Winslow Park was dedicated to the public in 1923 so the the people could enjoy the beauty of Big Whitefish Lake.  We look forward to developing Winslow Park into a family friendly environment for all to enjoy!   

 

Signs have been placed for parking for the safety of the visitors and the residents of the lake. 

 

Please be courteous of the residents of the lake, as to park where allowed.
