Columbus County Park

The St. Clair County Parks and Recreation Commission (PARC) has recently purchased 291 acres of the Bauman Road Farms property in Columbus Township from the Trust for Public Land (TPL), a national non-profit organization, using a $1.4 million Michigan Natural Resources Trust Fund grant.

BMJ Engineers and Surveyors have completed a topographical base map of the four parcels that will be part of the new park. The base map will be used to develop a master plan for the park.

PARC has contracted with Landscape Architect, Pamela Blough, to develop the park master plan. PARC held a public visioning session to get citizen input into the development of Columbus County Park on November 27th 2007 at the Columbus Township Hall.

 

A second session was held in January of 2008 and in June, the Parks and Recreation Commission formally adopted the Columbus County Park master plan.

PARC hopes to start development of the park in 2008 with the construction of a parking lot off of Kronner Road and a Belle River access site for fishermen, canoeists and kayakers.
