It looks like the weather is going to be great again this weekend and yes, a lot of places are still closed in and around the Lansing area, however, if you didn't know there's a couple of parks near us that are going to be open this weekend. According to the Ingham County Parks Facebook page, you'll be able to use the mountain bike trails and disc golf courses at Burchfield Park this weekend and you can also check out the in-park canoe and kayak rentals from 9 am until 5 pm on Saturday and Sunday. They do add that those are available "on a walk-up basis for $6 per hour. Downstream Trips on the Grand River from McNamara Landing are available on weekends and holidays BY RESERVATION ONLY! To make a reservation or for more information on fees and new procedures call the office at 517-676-2233."

You can also use the trails and the Soldan Dog Park at Hawk Island Park this weekend. Plus, you'll also be able to rent an in-park canoe or kayak at Hawk Island Park. Just like Burchfield Park, the canoe and kayak rentals will cost you $6 an hour. Also, the hiking trails at Lake Lansing North are going to be open this weekend too, and the concessions will be open at Lake Lansing South.

DO keep in mind that playgrounds, picnic shelters reservations, all swimming beaches and the Hawk Island Splash Pad are still closed. Click here to get the latest information regarding the Ingham County Parks and Activities Status.
