    The first 58 of 102 acres of land was donated to the City of Lansing by J.W. & Sarah Potter in 1959 and became known as Potter’s Park. The park became a popular Lansing destination and in 1920 Elk were the first animals house in the new Potter Park Zoo, fallowed by a bear, a couple raccoons and several deer.

    Looking for something different to do this holiday season? Check out The Festival of Trees this weekend in Lansing. This year, the event is hosted at the Turner-Dodge House in Old Town. I remember this event as a child. It was always so magical to see so many variations on something so familiar. The creativity is inspiring! The submissions are from businesses, groups, and individuals from around the Lansing area. Specific information can be found at the link below.
  • It feels like you are "up north" when you are at Hawk Island Park, and it's only a 10 minute drive from Downtown Lansing or East Lansing. Hawk Island County Park is a 100 acre park in Lansing. You can live within walking distance from the park for less than $100,000.

    The park offers enough to keep the entire family busy: boat rentals, swimming beach, splash pad, picnic areas, sand volleyball, horseshoes, fishing, a playground, and snow tubing in the winter. I frequently walk the park in the early morning, bike around in the evening, and while fly fishing, catch some bluegill. You can easily spend hours enjoying the outdoors at Hawk Island. There is a low vehicle entrance fee, or you can buy a year round pass that gets you into all the Ingham County Parks. If you are walking in, there is no fee. I recommend getting the pass. Once you visit Hawk Island you will be planning your return.

    Every year on the Saturday after Memorial Day weekend, the Greater Lansing Convention & Visitor's Bureau hosts an event called "Be A Tourist In Your Own Town". For $1, you can visit over 90 attractions in the Greater Lansing area, such as the Capitol Building, Potter Park Zoo, Lugnuts Stadium, art galleries, museums, breweries and more. You can also ride the CATA buses for a very affordable price (50 cents in 2015). It's a great way to see all the cool things that Greater Lansing has to offer.

    Great News! Office and retail space in Downtown Lansing seems to be heating up. For starters, there are several new projects under development, not the least of which are several new residential properties being built. Not only that, the Michigan Association of Broadcasters is building a brand new media center just three blocks from the State Capitol. This facility will not only house the Association's new office space, but a new, state of the art media center that can be used by State Government, the City of Lansing, any anyone who needs a facility with the latest in high tech internet services.

    Still more! There are several major players who are shopping Downtown for redevelopment and expansion. All of this activity should produce added need for more retail and residential space. We are seeing tenants and buyers asking about space for day care, restaurants, theater and professional use.

    Recent collaboration between MSU, the City of Lansing, and the Chamber of Commerce brings a ton of new economic energy our Capitol City. It looks like Lansing is beginning to live up to the reputation of being a "cool city".
  • Ingham County is well know for its beautiful parks. You can get a little of everything in one county. You can visit Hawk Island Park, Burchfield Park and Lake Lansing Park. Hawk Island is a great place to go running, hiking, fishing, tubing and has its own dog park. Burchfield Park features a great pool, cross country skiing and disk golf. At Lake Lansing Park you can enjoy laying out on the beach, taking a spin on your boat or simply enjoy the beautiful sights throughout the 1,200 acres of Parkland. We are lucky to have our County take such good care of our parks. There is truly something to do year round!

    Sleepy Hollow State Park is over 2,600 acres of trails and lake. Great place to hike, mountain bike, cross-country skiing, fishing, boating, picnicking, wildlife viewing, snowmobiling, hunting, and disk golfing. If you haven't been to our wonderful state park you should check it out.

    The river walk extends along the Grand River in Lansing and is a great place to not only get good exercise through walking, running or biking, but also a great way to explore the city as it now connects areas of interest across town.
