The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency is overseeing the removal of PCB-contaminated sediment within Verburg Park Pond and along the banks of the Kalamazoo River. Work is nearly complete but Verburg Park will remain closed through November 30, 2023 for park restoration. The boat launch at Mayors' Riverfront Park remains open for public use.
Verburg Park is a great park for the outdoor enthusiast. With nearly 10 acres, Verburg has plenty of grassy open areas plus a grill, swing set, and grass surface basketball court. Verburg is bordered by the Kalamazoo River and is a great spot for fishing or launching a kayak or canoe in a small lagoon off the river. The Kalamazoo Valley River Trail also runs through the length of the park offering a nice smooth walking or biking experience and connecting to downtown and other parks and amenities. Parking is available at the north end of the park off East Paterson.
Verburg Park is named after City Alderman and Mayor Cornelius Verburg.
