grand rogue park update

As of August 20, 2019:  Grand Rogue Park remains closed to the public but we are in the final stages of preparing the park for safe public access.  The new entrance drive is currently under construction and we continue to open up (mowing and removing downed trees/debris) internal walking trails.  We are also removing dilapidated poles and wiring that formerly served camping sites.  We anticipate opening the park in late fall.  Updates and announcement of the opening date will be posted here, in our weekly newsletter (click here to subscribe), the township’s Facebook page, and at the park.   

Parks and Recreation
For a community to thrive, there must be dedicated spaces for recreation. These spaces provide us the opportunity to unwind, have fun and recharge. Plainfield Charter Township's Parks and Recreation Department recognizes this and works diligently to support and develop recreational areas and activities for the community of Plainfield Township. In an effort to more effectively do so, the Parks and Recreation Master plan was established and is updated every five years.

Plainfield Charter Township maintains several community parks scattered throughout the township. Some, such as Premier,  Grand Isle, Versluis and the D. W. Richardson parks, are multi-use complexes, however most are simply designed for the enjoyment of our local residents. Our park system offers a variety of recreational accoutrements, including sports fields, lakes, great fishing, playgrounds, picnic spaces, and beautiful destinations for family outings personal breaks from the hustle and bustle of daily life!
