About the Park
With picnic areas and shelters spread among wooded hills along the Bear Creek valley, Townsend Park is a scenic and easy to reach destination for Grand Rapids area visitors. The historic open shelter and enclosed shelterhouse are favorite locations for group events like retreats, graduation parties, family reunions and weddings. In the park’s north section, a hiking trail winds through a large pine plantation. The Cannon Township Trail also links to the park from the north, featuring a boardwalk over natural wetlands.
