Movie in Van Buren Park
In partnership with the Belleville Lake Fest, Van Buren Township’s Parks and Rec department will be transforming Van Buren Park into an outdoor movie theater. Join us for a family-friendly FREE flick of Finding Nemo on Friday, July 30. This event is free and open to the public. However, you must register beforehand.  To register, for the movie night, we're asking residents to create a Van Buren Township Rec Desk account (Van Buren Township will not sell or distribute your personal information, this account is for Parks and Recreation programs and events ONLY). If you already have a Rec Account you can log in and head to the Programs tab to complete your registration. 
Register at vanburen-mi.org/movie.

Pardon our Dust At the Parks
Van Buren Park & French Landing are experiencing ongoing construction beginning spring of 2021 until late Summer 2021.

In Van Buren Park the “Saddle”, a portion of Van Buren Park’s road, which connects the front and back loops is currently under construction. While this project is under way it means there will be little to no access to this area. This project is part of the Iron Belle Trail and was made possible through a DNR grant. When completed, this area will be paved with a walking path!

French Landing Park will be closed starting Monday, June 7, 2021.  Construction consists of site demo, prep, electrical, infrastructure needs, pathways, new sunshade, and outdoor furniture.  All bathrooms will also be closed during the construction.
