As the residential and business population of Jamestown Charter Township continues to increase, the amount of recreation area per person is reduced, creating access challenges to recreational opportunities. Areas of recreation provide gathering places for residents, employees of local businesses and visitors to socialize, relax, be physically active, and build community.
In an effort to guide the development of recreational opportunities in Jamestown Charter Township, the Jamestown Charter Township Community Recreation Plan was created. Click HERE to download a PDF of the 2019-2024 Community Recreation Plan.
Currently, the township owns and maintains an expanding system of non-motorized pathways. The township recognizes that as the community continues to grow at a high rate and strategically located open land becomes increasingly scarce, the need for an extensive pathway network, convenient parks, and recreation facilities will become more critical.
Jamestown Charter Township’s Parks and Recreation Committee has utilized the Michigan Department of Natural Resources planning process and designed this document as a tool to facilitate the public discussion and consensus building necessary to plan the future recreational needs of the community.
Non-motorized pathways throughout the township serve to connect residents and visitors to schools, neighborhoods, recreation and business areas. In addition to the current pathways shown on the Designated Pathways Map, new and extended pathways are planned and being developed.
