Nike Park

488 Newport Road, Frenchtown Township
Monroe, Mi 48162

  nikepark

 

Nike Park, located on Newport Road in Frenchtown, was originally part of a World War II Nike missile base and was acquired from the federal government.  An area of this park was recently tiled and four soccer fields were developed.  A 1999 DNR grant allowed for the development of an accessible play area, pathways, and parking improvements.  Also present in this park is a picnic area, play equipment, and large areas of open space.  Cooperative agreements with private clubs have resulted in the development of a model aircraft flying area and an area for beagle training and competitions is under development.  A small section of the park is inaccessible due to its location on the opposite side of a county drain and is farmed by the adjacent owner.

Vienna Park in Bedford Township was originally acquired from the state highway department after it was used, in part, as a sand pit for road construction.  The park has a small pond and natural area as well as active recreational facilities.  A 1999 grant also allowed for the development of trails and new play equipment at this park.  In 2001 the disc golf course was improved and expanded to 18 holes.  In 2007 and 2008 additional play equipment was installed.  Also, in 2007 a new asphalt entrance drive and parking was constructed.  All five baseball fields have upgraded fencing for foul lines and backstops.
