Wallace Park

 

Dec. 15th, 2014, TV 9&10 news story:  http://www.9and10news.com/story/27634286/dnr-awards-45000-recreation-passport-grant-to-roscommon-park

 

Wallace Park is located across from St. Michaels Catholic Church on S. 7th Street. It is unique in the Village and the surrounding area as it has been continually open as a public access point on the AuSable River since 1953, and it is the only public access to the South Branch of the AuSable River in all of Roscommon County. Wallace Park is not only used for local events such as the Annual Roscommon Canoe Classic, AuSable River Festival, Rotary Duck Race, and the Michigan Firemen’s Memorial Festival, but it is also frequently utilized as a “quiet area” where residents and visitors can picnic, nap, watch the ducks, or read beside the river.
