Ada Township’s Roselle Park is a fantastic slice of preserved natural
habitat on the Grand River. Roselle Park is unique in many ways. It includes
240 acres of land and over one mile of frontage on the Grand River. The park
will eventually have over one mile of paved trail from the park entry back to
the Grand River, a barrier-free boardwalk and river overlook, canoe landing,
benches, litter receptacles and seasonal toilet facilities.
Grants, private donations and township funds
will provide $277,000 for development of
this unique park. Improvements are already
in progress to restore wetlands and wildlife
habitat in the park, through a “Partners for Fish and Wildlife” project jointly
undertaken by the Township, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and Ducks
Roselle Park is already being used for hiking, bird-watching by local birding
enthusiasts, cross-country skiing and guided educational tours sponsored
by the Ada Township Parks Department.
The Grand Opening was held in late October 2007 and more improvements
will be made in the future including a wildlife observation tower on the river.
A new walking path connects it to the community.
