Meridian Township provides a park or natural area within 15-20 minute walk of every Township resident. That is approximately 2000 steps (on your pedometer) closer to
a healthier lifestyle. With over 900 acres of land on 29 park properties with 20 miles of trails and 76 miles of pedestrian/bicycle pathways, we have numerous opportunities for you and your family to enjoy getting to your destination of choice along the Trails of Meridian. Check out our parks!
North Meridian Road Park was acquired in 1991 and has 40.6 acres of upland habitat and 19.4 acres of wetlands. The 2 miles of trails in this park take you through a remnant prairie with a high diversity of plant life; woodlands that offer shade and sights of early spring wildflowers such as Bloodroot and Spring Beauty; or a sunny open meadow with views of bluebirds, butterflies and many other insects enjoying the late summer flowers. Other amenities in North Meridian Road Park include athletic fields, sand volleyball courts, a sledding hill, play equipment, year-round heated restrooms and a pavilion.
A new pavilion was recently added to North Meridian Road Park funded by a grant from the Michigan Natural Resources Trust Fund. This grant also paid for an accessible picnic table and a barbecue grill.
Located at 5191 N. Meridian Road, this 60-acre park is a popular four-seasons park. In winter, families love going down the sledding hill, hiking and cross-country skiing along the two miles of nature trails. New trail signs were added this year. Expansion of the parking lot is planned for 2019.
