The Walking Path at Ada Township Park

Ada Township Park has both paved walking paths and natural hiking trails. The paved trails are open for biking.

The trails are short and connect to the fishing lagoon. You can walk, on paved trails, around the lagoon, crossing three small wooden bridges as you go. This is a favorite spot for kids to look for fish in the lagoon.

The trails through the woods are short and flat, with a natural surface. It's an easy hike to add on to an afternoon at the playground.
