Roselle Park in Ada Michigan along the Grand River is  247 acre park that is

a dedicated Natural Habitat Refuge.  On a rainy Saturday a few weeks

ago, we stopped and took  a few photos.  It was cold and windy but

the fall colors were great.  We walked on one of the trails along the Grand

River. A very peaceful place to visit. Dogs on leashes are welcome.

These silos were left from the previous owner of the property. The one with

the stars on top has been made into a 9 story observation tower.

winds it’s way north then west, eventually emptying into Lake Michigan.

This spot is just north of the confluence of the Thornapple River at Ada MI.

We took a drive along the Grand River last week and took in some

local sites.  The Grand River was a full flood stage and it changed the

scenery in a few places. This short video was taken at Roselle Park

in Ada Township Michigan.  This park is a 274 acre natural preserve

right on the banks of the Grand River.  It normally has some swampy

areas, but nothing like the scenes in the video.  Usually you have to

walk about 100 yards to get close to the river.



Since we didn’t bring our wading boots, we stayed near the entrance and

just shot our video.  We will go back and photograph the park without

water soon.

Ada Township’s Roselle Park is a fantastic slice of preserved natural

habitat on the Grand River. Roselle Park is unique in many ways.   It includes

240 acres of land and over one mile of frontage on the  Grand River.  The park

will eventually have over one mile of paved trail from the park entry back to

the Grand River, a barrier-free boardwalk and river overlook, canoe landing,

benches, litter receptacles and seasonal toilet facilities.

Grants, private donations and township funds

will provide $277,000 for development of

this unique park. Improvements are already

in progress to restore wetlands and wildlife

habitat in the park, through a “Partners for Fish and Wildlife” project jointly

undertaken by the Township, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and Ducks


Roselle Park is already being used for hiking, bird-watching by local birding

enthusiasts, cross-country skiing and guided educational tours sponsored

by the Ada Township Parks Department.

The Grand Opening was held in late October 2007 and more improvements

will be made in the future including a wildlife observation tower on the river.

A new walking path connects it to the community.

Come on out and check out this newest park in Ada Township.

It is located at 1010 Grand River Dr. SE
