What's there: Andy Stevens says, 'I almost wet myself when I pulled up to Burchfield for some striding. Posted on the trail are skating and striding zones, and a decent attempt at grooming for skating. I talked with one of the employees and will be meeting with the management about grooming. So the skating conditions should get better. For all of those, in the center of the state, looking to skate Burchfield is open!'

With 540 acres of scenic woods, trails and beach, Burchfield Park is Ingham County's largest park. There is a small fee to enter the park.

Don't let the snow keep you inside! Come enjoy your Ingham County Parks during one of the most beautiful seasons of the year.
