Battle Creek Parks and Recreation working on next five year plan

Process includes gathering data and public input to shape goals and objectives
For the next five years, the Battle Creek Parks and Recreation Department hopes to do its part to help residents off the couch and on their feet. "We need to find a better way to leverage our physical assets," said Ted Dearing, the department's business and organizational development manager, "which include (Full Blast) but also all of our parks, and our linear trail system as well, to get people physically active."

Battle Creek officials consider moving beach

City officials say move is for safety. A more open area would keep distance between swimmers and boaters.
Relocating Willard Beach slightly north is part of the plan to upgrade the city-owned park on Goguac Lake. The city of Battle Creek is preparing to ask the state of Michigan to fund most of the $400,000 project that could give beach-goers a new sandy sunning spot for summer 2015.
