South Fireman’s Park

This park is located directly behind the Township Hall on Bell Road.  It is the host park for the summer Cal-Ripkin baseball program and the Niles-Brandywine girls’ softball program.  It is by far the busiest park during the summer with many parents, grandparents and visitors watching area youth participating in ball games and tournaments.  Concessions are sold during the season and other amenities include play structures, tennis courts, picnic tables, grills and one pavilion for use at no charge.

This one acre mini park is located along M-51 and provides playground equipment, two benches, two grills and a covered picnic shelter.

Fulkerson Park

Samson Park

This 3.5 acre neighborhood park is located on Knight Road east of Holmes Drive.  Amenities include playground equipment (Tot Lot), a picnic shelter/pavilion, picnic tables, grill, four benches, and a winter toboggan run.

Brandywine Creek Nature Park

This park is located at the corner of S. 3rd Street and U.S. 12 and is owned by the State of Michigan and managed by the Township.  Brandywine Creek, a designated Trout stream, winds through the property.  It is another one of our popular fishing parks.
