Portage parks

"PORTAGE, MI - At least two Portage parks are slated for improvements this year. The new Eliason Nature Reserve will have its 1½-mile trail paved from Osterhout Avenue to Portage Industrial Drive and Lakeview and Schrier parks will be getting new playgrounds." (MLive/Kalamazoo Gazette)

The property was donated to the city by the family of the late David Eliason, the former president of Eliason Corporation.
