Hawk Island Park

Hawk Island County Park is run by the Ingham County Parks Department. It is located on Cavanaugh Street between Pennsylvania Ave and Aurelius Ave. Previously the site of a gravel pit, Hawk Island has been transformed into a wonderful family park with rowboat and pedal boat rental, a swimming beach, picnic areas and shelters, sand volleyball, horseshoes, paved accessible walkways (1.5 miles) and fishing docks and a concession stand.

In the winter there is a great sledding hill for all ages. Grab a hot chocolate afterwards in the warming hut. The trails are still open and maintained regularly.

Ample parking is available at the park. There is a per vehicle entrance fee of $3 for residents and $5 for non-residents Thursday through Tuesday. Annual passes are available for $30 for Ingham County residents and $40 for non-Ingham County residents. Annual passes are available at the gatehouses when an attendant is staffed.
