Dwight Lydell Park

Activities and Facilities

dwight lydell walking trails
Trails
A paved trail two-thirds of a mile long encircles the main recreation area of the park, and is popular for walking and jogging. Three loops around the park on this scenic trail add up to a total of two miles.

Fishing
Originally a fish hatchery for the State of Michigan, Dwight Lydell Park still contains ponds that were once part of the hatchery operations. Although these ponds are not stocked, fishing is allowed.

Picnics and Group Events
Dwight Lydell Park has two open picnic shelters that are available for picnics and other group events such as weddings, meetings, reunions and parties. All of these may be reserved for a fee. If the open shelters are not reserved, they are available first-come first-served for no fee.
