Charter Township of Comstock, Parks & Recreation

Comstock Township is the proud home of several of Michigan’s most beautiful parks. From the swan-laden Cooper Park, named after renowned author of The Last of the Mohicans, James Fenimore Cooper, to the winding, scenic paths of McLinden Trails, named after one of our Townships most devoted residents, Fred McLinden, the parks in our Township offer a wide variety of recreational activities suitable for people of all ages.

The Comstock Township Parks & Recreation Commission is in the process of updating our 5-year strategic plan. This plan outlines our goals, objectives, and direction of our parks for 2020-2024. The most important part of this process is hearing from Comstock residents. Please take a moment to complete this short survey.



Merrill Park will be under construction this summer through September. We are excited for the updates and we look forward to enjoying the park with you this fall!

For construction updates, please visit this link throughout the summer for more information.

The boat launch will remain open during construction and after.

The Parks & Recreation Department has received a $300,000 grant from the State of Michigan’s Department of Natural Resources Trust Fund for improvements to Merrill Park. This is a wonderful opportunity to complete some much needed improvements and bring the community together at one of our most beloved parks. Updates include new playground equipment, two pavilions and a basketball court, as well as a new restroom building. We will add a walking path around the park, widen the entrance drive and create a welcoming pedestrian entrance.  If you would like more information about this project, please call the Parks Department at 269-343-8212 or visit a Parks & Recreation Commission meeting, second Monday of the month at 7:00pm at the Comstock Township Hall.
