Recreational Access & Greenspace

As the state-designated Regional Clearinghouse for the Greater Lansing area, Tri-County reviews jurisdictions' parks- and recreation-related plans for alignment with best practices and urban and rural development standards set for the region, many of which are outlined in our vision for regional growth.

 

The connectivity and accessibility of our region's parks, trails, and water amenities play a crucial role in making the Greater Lansing area a competitive place to live and play. Recreational activities and greenspace greatly improve the quality of life of our region's residents and visitors, and they add value to our economy. Tri-County collaborates with community stakeholders to plan for purposeful redevelopment of spaces that will provide access for all, making our region's amenities and assets, like the Grand River, shared resources with ample placemaking opportunities. 

 

Additionally, we partner with organizations across the region to promote and advocate for our region's parks and recreational assets and link healthy community initiatives with non-motorized transportation planning. We actively collaborate with partners like the Michigan Fitness Foundation, Land Use & Health Resource Team, Healthy! Capital Counties, Power of We, Ingham County Parks, Eaton County Parks & Recreation Department, and Clinton County Parks & Greenspace Commission​.
