In our newsletter there was a mistake with the wording on Recreational Fires: The sentence that reads. Fire needs to be 25 feet within any structure. What was meant to say is fires need to be 25 feet away from any structure.   The Master plan for 2023  is on the Planning Zoning page for public participation.                                             

Wilson Recreation Area

wilson recreation areaThe 2.5-acre park was formerly a popular, neighborhood school named Wilson School, bordered by Gayle and Lum Avenue in the heart of Kalamazoo Township’s Eastwood neighborhood, near the Eastwood library branch, the Eastwood Fire Station, churches, a grocery store and other businesses. After the school district demolished the school, neighbors championed a new park on the site, featuring a large, mowed field intentionally designed for a variety of uses (such as playing tag or exchanging a frisbee or ball), as well as a paved waking path along the perimeter, playground equipment designed for young children, benches, picnic tables, a grill, and parking.

Wilson Recreation Area is located at 2520 Coy Ave, Kalamazoo, MI 49048.
