Herman Community Park

Suttons Bay Township’s newest park development! We now have two soccer fields, a challenging 18 hole disc golf course and four USTA approved tennis courts!

In June 2014,thanks to a DNR Recreation Passport Grant we will start construction of an Accessible paved trail from the parking lot to the pond and purchase an Accessible fishing dock and a small shade structure.

We have started fund raising for our next priority which is a large (60' x 120') covered pavilion which will be located adjacent to the tennis courts. The pavilion will be multi-functional and will serve as an ice skating pavilion during the winter months. The cost of the project is approximately $215,000. We have applied for another Recreation Passport Grant and have a challenge grant of $60,000 from a local resident. We need to raise about $60,000 by August of this year (if we get the grant), another $45,000 (if we don't get the grant). Any and all donations are appreciated! :)

This winter we will be attempting to groom about a mile and half trail for cross country skiing and snow shoeing.

The park is currently open to the public from dawn to dusk.
