Introduction

Battle Creek Regional Park consists of 1,840 acres of natural area located just outside a highly developed urban environment. Extensive areas of woods, wetlands, and grassland attract many species of wildlife. Trails offer visitors the opportunity to see many species of wildlife including deer, fox, herons, egrets and hawks, along with the beauty of the natural plant communities. Picnic shelters are available with one large pavilion accommodating groups of up to 500 people. The pavilion and picnic shelters are available for reservations.
