Parks & Gardens

Koi ponds, fresh blooms and seasonal gardens create the perfect backdrop for breathing in the serenity of nature. Read a book at Lansing Community College’s Shigematsu Memorial Garden or take a relaxing stroll along the paths of the W.J. Beal Botanical Gardens. Bringing the kids? Check out the MSU 4-H Children's Gardens. You will leave feeling refreshed, more focused and ready to take on whatever lies ahead.

Recreation & Relaxation

Trade in the traffic jams for some room to roam and those four walls you've been trapped in all day for some open space. You may find that a little fresh air is all you need to relax and unwind. So come stretch your legs and enjoy the beauty of the great outdoors at one of Greater Lansing’s parks and recreational attractions.
