Woodland Park and Nature Preserve offers many unique features and opportunities for the community. The Park is a 145-acre natural area with entrances located on Helmer and Gethings Roads. Its various trails weave through the park, showcasing its natural beauty. The Park is a fantastic resource that can be enjoyed year-round by the entire family.

In addition to miles of trails, which take you by some of Michigan’s most beautiful wild foliage, wetlands and wooded areas, the Park is home to a historic grain silo (that the Park Committee is working to preserve). The Park and Preserve also aides conservation groups with its green space, including the Michigan Department of Natural Resources and Environment and the Calhoun Conservation District. In addition, the Woodland Park Committee and the City of Battle Creek are working with area educators and conservation groups to use the Park as a valuable teaching resource.

Whether it be hiking, cross-country skiing, snow-shoeing, education, conservation, bluebird watching or simply a walk with your dog, the Woodland Park and Nature Preserve offers you a great natural resource close to home in Battle Creek!
