About the Park
This 60 acre greenspace is mostly undeveloped, offering only parking at the main entrance and a single trail through the forest. When the original 20 acres of the park were acquired in 1927, they contained one of the few remaining pure stands of white pines in the county. The park has since been managed with the goal of preserving this stand and enhancing it with plantings of new white pine seedlings.

Our park isn't the only attraction in Kent County named after the state tree of Michigan! If you're really looking for information on the White Pine State Trail running from Grand Rapids to Cadillac, try these links to the DNR's web page on the trail and the Friends of the White Pine Trail.
