Upjohn Park spans 18 acres and is one of the busiest parks in Kalamazoo. Upjohn contains a “Boundless Playground”, a skatepark, multi-use field, basketball courts, tennis courts, grills, and a picnic shelter with tables. A section of the Kalamazoo River Valley Trail (KRVT) also runs through Upjohn Park. Kik Pool is located in Upjohn park and is the only 50 meter outdoor swimming pool in the Kalamazoo area. Every June, Six Starz Skate Jam calls the Upjohn skatepark home.
Upjohn Park is named after Mayor Dr. William E. Upjohn who gifted the land in 1919.
