Donald J Lamoreaux Park

With a looping network of trails along nearly 1.5 miles of Grand River shoreline, Donald J. Lamoreaux Park offers an up close chance to discover the natural environment of the river valley. The park’s trails meander through woods and wetlands and include a scenic deck overlooking the river itself.

With more than a mile of frontage on the Grand River, Donald J Lamoreaux Park offers many good locations for fishing that are both relatively easy to access and a little more remote. The park’s trail system runs along the river’s edge for about a third of a mile in two separate locations.


Donald J Lamoreaux Park Loop is a moderately trafficked loop trail that is good for all skill levels. The trail offers a number of activity options. Dogs are allowed but must be kept on leash.

Visitors will find various trail loops passing through forests, wetlands and open fields and along the river’s edge. The loops intersect in several locations so it may be helpful to bring along a copy of the map if you are new to the park.
