City of Evart Parks
Riverside Park West
Riverside Park West is located in the Southeast corner of the city, along the Muskegon River, where residents can enjoy the riverside walking trail as well as boat and canoe access via a ramp. This 17-acre park offers many active recreation facilities including a splash pad, beach volleyball, shuffleboard courts, a basketball court, baseball fields, two playground areas, two pavilions, forty- six picnic tables, and two drinking fountains. Due to repeated flooding, the campground at Riverside West is no longer in operation. Viewing and fishing platforms are another addition to the park.
Riverside Park East
Riverside Park East, a 33-acre park purchased in 2003 with a Natural Resources Trust Fund grant is located in the southeast corner of the city, directly across the Muskegon River from Riverside Park West. This partially wooded park features a trail-loop used frequently by walkers, joggers, bikers, and other outdoor enthusiasts. During the winter months the trail is frequented by skiers, and show-shoers. A foot bridge and viewing platform are also enjoyed by park-users. Additionally the park features primitive camp sites and a new pavilion structure.
Evart Skate Park
The Evart Skate Park was first opened in 2005 to provide seasonal skateboarding, rollerblading, and BMX biking for area residents. The fenced-in 33’ x 102’ park features several ramps, a grind rail, benches, picnic tables, and is surrounded by a large open lawn slated for possible future development.
This quaint 0.40-acre park, located on a corner-lot within the northern edge of the City’s central business district, is named after the first soldier killed in World War I, on foreign soil. The park offers passive recreational uses and features a cannon dating back to WWI, and a monument to the memory of all who lost their lives from Evart during WWI, WWII, the Korean War, and the Vietnam conflict.
This 0.75-acre passive park is located on the west end of the City and provides area residents with an ideal picnicking location. It is used frequently by people attending events at the Osceola County Fairgrounds, as it is located directly across from fairgrounds camping and parking.
City Tennis Courts & Ball Field
Adjacent to the Evart Elementary School is a 4-acre parcel of City-owned land that is home to two tennis courts, a baseball field, and a parking area.
City Park (SW Corner of 7-MIle and Main Street)
As part of an agreement with Nestle Waters North America (Ice Mountain), the City acquired a 12-acre parcel of land on the corner of 7-Mile Road and North Main Street. The property is currently vacant until plans are developed for its future use. Per an agreement with the National Park Resource Trust Fund, this parcel is restricted for park and recreation use only.
Note: Although "Public Square" is shown on this map as a city park, it now belongs to the Evart Public Schools. The Play All Day Playground, the Ball Fields, and the Track also belong to Evart Public Schools. The small park east of Heritage Park on Twin Creek belongs to the Osceola County Fairgrounds.
