Comstock Parks & Gardens
Merrill Park was established in 1939 as Comstock's first park. Inside are fishing access areas, basketball courts, picnic sites, green space and playground equipment. In 1996, former president Bill Clinton spoke to residents in the park.
Located between Battle Creek and Kalamazoo, Fort Custer Recreation Area provides facilities for boating, biking, hiking, swimming and other activities. Inside the park is one of the few remaining oak barrens—widely spaced oak trees in a field of grass and wildflowers—found in Michigan.
Enjoy a picnic or barbeque at Cooper Park in Comstock. A waterfall gently drops in the park into a pond, which is home to swans and welcomes fishing. There is plenty of green space to enjoy a range of activities on.
Inside Peer Park is a picnic area, a fishing pond and plenty of green space for different activities. Each year, Comstock's Arbor Day celebrations are held here, resulting in the planting of many trees.
Home to the Jan Schau Wildflower Walk, the River Villa Preserve provides ample scenic views for visitors to see as they explore Comstock's natural side.
Visitors of River Oaks County Park can cross-country ski, hike, picnic and enjoy a wealth of other recreational opportunities. The park is located in between Comstock and Galesburg, above Morrow Lake, to which a boat ramp is available.
