DescriptionThe Battle Creek Linear Park offers a beautiful and safe trail for walking, jogging, cycling, and skating. It joins many picturesque spots for fishing in the Battle Creek and Kalamazoo rivers, canoeing or a picnic. Over 25 miles of paved pathway winds through wooded areas, open fields, parks, and even some commercial areas.

The Battle Creek Linear Park offers unlimited recreational AND educational opportunities. With more than 25 miles of paved pathway, the park is perfect for a brisk jog or a leisurely stroll. Unlike some parks, the Linear Park has no admission charge and no "front gate." The Linear Park meanders throughout greater Battle Creek, and you can get "on" the park almost anywhere.

For the out-of-town visitor, perhaps the best place to get "on the park" is located across the bridge near Friendship Park in downtown Battle Creek. There you'll find plenty of free parking. Bring your favorite equipment (even if it's just a pair of comfortable walking shoes). Linear fun is for Everyone!
