Community Garden Park

The Pierson Township Parks & Recreation Committee has plans to begin development of the quarter acre of land behind the Township Hall for a Community Garden Park.  Volunteers will be needed to build raised garden beds, build bean-pole tee-pees and create fun and interactive items or the garden area.  

The maze created or the Fall Festival last year has been mowed into a walking trail in the adjacent land slated for future cemetery growth. Click here for the aerial shot from last year. Some modifications will be made this year - watch for more!

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 2021.  Join us at a meeting if you have ideas or want to help! 

Parks & Recreation will be holding a booth at the Pierson Township Farmers Market each Friday this year for activities and information!

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.
