Meridian Riverfront Trail Map and Brochure 

Eastgate Park is located at the far eastern edge of Meridian Township and makes up 53 acres of a larger park called Meridian Riverfront Park. This land was purchased in 1986 with the assistance of a Land and Water Conservation Fund grant. Eastgate Park has nature trails that follow the shoreline of the Red Cedar River and connect to the trails of the Harris Nature Center. You can also find a bicycle pump track at this park that was construction by residents and members of the Michigan Mountain Bike Association in 2009.
