From the Director's Desk

It is hard to believe another summer has come and gone.  As we prepare for the change of season, leaves becoming bright reds and oranges and the crisp fall air, remember Lansing has a lot to offer.

It is the perfect time to canoe or kayak the Grand or Red Cedar Rivers and view the city in its entire vibrant splendor from a unique perspective.

If you prefer, you may tour the city by walking or riding the Regional River Trail.  With over 16 miles of trail which will take you from Old Town in north Lansing through the city, along the river, passing through the woods and south to Delhi Township you are sure to see the city like you have never seen it before.

I am pleased to announce the City of Lansing has received grants from the Ingham County Trail Millage in the amount of $4,849,000 to make much needed repairs to the regional trail.  Projects will include: Oakland Avenue repair ($86,000); Michigan Avenue repair ($281,000); Red Cedar near Potter Park ($1,806,000) Adjacent to CN railroad underpass ($335,000); Over the Grand River near Moores Park ($1,317,000); and East of Aurelius Road ($1,024,000)

If you are looking to be active indoors, be sure to browse the Fall Activity Guide for a wide assortment of classes.  Lansing Parks and Recreation has a spectrum of classes, activities and programs for youth to adult including swim, art, dance, fitness, martial arts, sports and more!

Thank you for your support and Believe in Lansing!
