Rotary Park- A Comfortable Downtown Park Perfect for Events
Three blocks west of the downtown area is Ludington’s Rotary Park, formerly known as City Park. Because of the many improvements being made to the park by the Rotary Club, it was decided to change the name in 2015. Many trees keep this park shady and comfortable in the warm summer months.
This is where the Rotary Band Shell is located, along with public restrooms in the back. Enjoy your lunch or dinner here at one of the numerous picnic tables, or just sit on the bench and watch the world pass by. Walkways dissect the park in a wagon-wheel formation.
The park also has a restroom facility that is open May-October, weather permitting.
Celebrate at Rotary Park!
Although Rotary Park is perfect for holding public fundraising events, it’s less used for celebrations but Rotary Park is open to the public without a permit needed for informal gatherings. However, if the event is large, open to the public, or will make use of the bandshell, a permit and fee and required by contacting the City of Ludington by calling (231) 845-6237.
Directions to Rotary Park
Head west through downtown Ludington, and three blocks past the 3rd stoplight at Rath is the park, between Lewis and Gaylord on your right.
