This 229 acre property, located on the Grand River in Polkton Township, was acquired by Ottawa County in the early 1800s and established as a “poor farm” to provide housing and services for indigent residents. This operation, called Community Haven, survived until the late 1990s. In April 2004, the Ottawa County Board of Commissioners approved a request by the Parks Commission to designate the Community Haven property for future park use.
Following several public meetings with potential user groups, a master plan for Community Haven was approved. The plan includes equestrian trails and facilities, development of an educational farm and general recreational use including river access. This park, now called Eastmanville Farm, currently offers 3.5 miles of equestrian and hiking trails and a parking lot.

Dogs are permitted at Eastmanville Farm. From May 1 through September 30, we ask that you take your pet on designated trails only. For the safety and enjoyment of all park guests, pets must be on ten foot leashes and under control. Owners must clean up after their pet and dispose of waste in a trash receptacle. Dogs are not permitted in park buildings, restrooms, picnic shelters, or as posted. Leader dogs for persons with disabilities are permitted in all areas at any time. Recognizing that most dogs enjoy running and playing freely, many Ottawa County Open Space Lands allow dogs year-round off leash.
Eastmanville Farm is located in Polkton Township on Leonard Street about 1.4 miles west of 68th Avenue.
