Theyre getting ready. The snow makers are pumping out snow and they are moving it into place. With the cold temps here to stay, Hawk Island Snow Park in Lansing will be THE place to be. Located just south of Lansings downtown area, Hawk Island is already a favorite Ingham County park in the warmer months with a small lake, pedal boat rentals, beach, splash pad, picnicking pavilions and its proximity to the 13 mile Lansing River Trail. But last year, with the power of some truly dedicated and creative individuals, the addition of a snow park became a reality and now Hawk Island Park is truly a four season gem.
Hawk Island Snow Park is ready to open in just a few days. With a hill that offers both snow tubing and snowboarding, this urban snow park is one of only a handful in the nation that serve a metropolitan area. No need to travel for miles to the big slopes and dole out really big bucks. This is the place to engage in your snowboarding habit or perfect your skills on the rails.
And for a whole different wintery fun option, the Snow Park offers a tubing hill. With chutes or lanes made of sculpted snow, this is a really fun way to spend a snowy day. Both the snowboarding and tubing areas offer lifts back up to the top. This year it looks like theyll be taking you up via a magic carpet not a tow rope. Sound like fun? Then plan to spend your next free snow day enjoying the great outdoors at Hawk Island Snow Park.
