Parks and Recreation Committee

The Kochville Township Parks and Recreation Committee helps the township board establish goals and policies for recreational facilities and programs and oversees their implementation. The committee develops a five-year state-approved recreation plan that allows Kochville Township to apply for grants from the Department of Natural Resources (DNR).

Kochville Township operates several facilities:

  • Elmer Lange Memorial Park:
    This five-acre park, located behind the Kochville Township offices at 5851 Mackinaw Road, offers a picnic area, pavilion, playground, and a ball field. It is directly connected to the Kochville Pathway.
  • Krossroad’s Park and Rainbow’s End Playground:
    The newest addition to Kochville Township’s recreational facilities, Krossroad’s Park is located ½ mile north of Tittabawassee Road on Fashion Square Boulevard. Visitors will find a picnic pavilion, restroom facilities, and access to the Kochville Pathway, as well as Rainbow’s End, the first universally accessible playground in the Tri-county area.
  • Kochville Pathway:
    The seven miles of this recreational pathway connect many areas of the township, including Krossroad’s Park and the business district, Saginaw Valley State University, and Elmer Lange Township Park.
  • Here is a link to the Township rail trail: Kochville Township Pathway
