Many people have never heard of Crego Park in Lansing.   That is probably because the park had been shutdown since 1986.  Back then was when some 200 drums of paint sludge and other toxic waste was found on the grounds of the park.
Now, 28 years later Crego park is back open.  It hosts 200 acres of wood park, hiking trails, picnic areas, fishing, Kayaks, and canoeing.

Yesterday, a group from the Douglas J. Academy met there for some park clean up.    It really is a lovely place, and pretty easy to find, near Mt.Hope and Aureilus roads.

Crego Park was originally named Red Cedar Flood Basin Park before being renamed to honor a former Lansing mayor.

No swimming is allowed, but there is still lots of fun to be had.   After 28 years, it might be time for you to see and take the family to Crego Park, again.
