Map

This map shows amenities, parking areas, features and trails. With nearly one mile of frontage along the south bank of the Grand River, this 64 acre park is the perfect place for picnicking, boating or fishing. The park includes a boat launch (fee required), picnic shelter, large pond with a barrier free fishing dock and over 1,000 feet of grassy picnic area along the riverbank. Fishing is allowed along the riverbank and from the edge of the pond.

Hours

March 1 through October 15:  7am to 10pm
October 16 through February 28:  7am to 8pm

Fees

There are no entry fees to the park, however, there is a self-serve boat launch fee that is strictly enforced. Vehicles with an Ottawa County Parks Annual Vehicle Permit do not have to pay the boat launch fee.

Dog Policy

Dogs are permitted at Riverside Park. 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. Owners should note that hunting is allowed on the 30 acres peninsula extending to the east on land that is leased from the state. Dogs are not permitted in 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.
