Upjohn Park spans 18 acres and is one of the busiest parks in Kalamazoo.  It's connected to the Kalamazoo River Valley Trail (KRVT) and is home to Kik Pool, the only 50-meter outdoor swimming pool in the Kalamazoo area. The park also has a “Boundless Playground”, skate park, multi-use field, basketball courts, tennis courts, grills, and a picnic shelter with tables. The KRVT connects Upjohn Park to other neighborhoods and amenities, like the nearby Kalamazoo Farmer's Market. A fitness court was added in 2022 in collaboration with Priority Health and the National Fitness Campaign. 

There is a picnic shelter at Upjohn Park that is available to rent. It's great for gatherings of 30-40 people. The cost is $95 for four hours.

Reserve Park Space

Upjohn Park is named after Mayor Dr. William E. Upjohn who gifted the land in 1919.
