About Grant Park

See all hotspots at Grant Park

Grant Park is a 187-acre natural area. Trails in the park lead along creeks and through meadow, forest, prairie, and wetland habitats. The trails are of varying difficulty; some follow ridgelines or bottomlands, while others climb fairly steep hills. Two fire rings, located at the Chimneys and behind the Grant Nature Center, are available for reservations. Campfires are allowed by permit only. For the safety of park visitors, bicycles are not permitted on the trails and all pets must be on a leash. Parking is available at Normandy Elementary School on Normandy Ridge Road, Hadley Watts Middle School on McEwen Road, and Grant Nature Nook on McEwen Road. Play equipment is located at Grant’s Trail entrance to the park.
