Gates, restrooms, and water fountains now open at city parks

Published on May 04, 2022

Kalamazoo city park gates, restrooms, and water fountains are open for the summer season, and parks and pavilions will be available to rent for parties, events, and weddings starting May 13.  

All Kalamazoo city parks are open daily from 8 a.m. to sunset. City parks are open year-round, but gates to some parking areas and vehicle drives are closed during the winter months because of reduced staffing. Restrooms and water fountains are winterized each year and reopen for the season once freezing temperatures pass and seasonal staff are available for cleaning and maintenance.

“It’s always exciting to fully open our parks and facilities this time of year, and it’s a sign that summer and warmer weather are right around the corner,” said Patrick McVerry, Parks & Recreation Director for the City of Kalamazoo. “Our team has been hard at work getting our park amenities ready for the community and we’re looking forward to a fun summer in our city parks!”
