PERE MARQUETTE TOWNSHIP — Pere Marquette Charter Township will hold a workshop for its Pere Marquette Conservation Park Master Planning Project on Saturday, October 3 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.  The workshop will be held in an open-air pavilion at the former Dow Activities Club Park site in PM Conservation Park.

The master planning project for acquisition of the former Dow park area began in fall 2019.  The planning effort is being conducted in partnership with MCSA Group, a Grand Rapids based landscape planner and architect and supported in part by a National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration grant received by the township through the Michigan Department of Environment, Great Lakes and Energy. 

“The upcoming workshop builds on the broad management concepts that were discussed with people who attended an earlier workshop at Buttersville Park in July,” said Parks Manager Kelly Smith.  “The October 3 program takes the project to the next level where attendees will receive additional information about the vision and goals for the property, preliminary designs for park facilities and a preliminary trail layout.”

The information will be displayed at poster stations where attendees can ask questions and provide input. Participants are welcome to come anytime during the two-hour window. 

Access to the site will be made available from South Lakeshore Drive.  The site entry location is about one-quarter mile north of Iris Road.  A PM Township parks staff member will be on site to provide direction at the entry location.

Those who are unable to attend may provide input by visiting
