About This Trail

[Total: 4    Average: 3.5/5]

Roselle Park is a 240-acre plus nature preserve located at 1010 Grand River Drive NE. The park was formerly home to the Ada Beef Company, and today features natural and restored beauty as well as the Roselle Park Resource Building which opened in 2016. The Resource Building features year-round restrooms and a meeting room that is used for Park programs and is available for rental by non-profits and local businesses.

A paved trail leads from the parking lot to the Grand River. Along the trail, there is a river overlook and canoe landing as well as the Woodrick Memorial wetland observation deck, restored natural streams and waterways and native wetland and prairie vegetation. The silo area features a natural-themed playground, climbing wall, picnic tables, and silo observation deck (open during special events). Paved and mowed natural trails wind through wetlands, prairies and forests–providing good opportunities to view wildlife and migrating birds. (

The park is open year-round and the trails are maintained in the winter. The natural trails can be used for x-country skiing and snowshoeing in the winter.

The paved loop distance is 3 miles. The natural trail distance varies.

Dogs must be kept on a leash and cleaned up after.

Hi! It’s great to meet you! I am a native of West Michigan, born and raised in the Grand Rapids suburbs. My husband Nick and I are parents to our two-year-old son, Roland. We love to get outside on our local trails, and also enjoy downhill skiing, and spending time at the lake. I work as a marketing professional for an agency out of Indianapolis, and I’m also on the Hike it Baby National Team as the Newsletter Coordinator. I hope to see you on the trail soon!
