Peace ParkCascade Peace Park is approximately 198 acres in size. This property consists of floodplain and meadow areas with extensive old growth forest. No improvements are on the property and it is intended that any changes to the property will only allow for passive recreational uses.
Cascade Peace Park is located at 8900 Grand River Ave. and can be accessed from two locations. The access off from Bolt Drive is located at the west end of Bolt Dr on an unpaved section of road. This access point has a small parking area and is better suited for handicapped access. The Grand River drive access is at the far NE corner of the property. Grand River Dr provides better access for those on bikes since it is located along a dedicated bike lane on the park side of the Grand River Dr. This location also provides an opportunity to provide public parking.
This property was identified originally by the Cascade Township open space study as having desirable features for preservation. In order to acquire the property the Township worked with the assistance of the open space committee, The Land Conservancy of West Michigan, The Nature Conservancy, The Michigan Department of Natural Resources, Disability advocates of West Michigan as well as local landscapers. The property was acquired with assistance by the Michigan Department of Natural Resources Trust Fund and The Nature Conservancy. Both of these organizations provided assistance in purchasing the property.
