THE BEST PARKS TO VISIT When You Visit The Nordic Pineapple
Our little town of St. Johns, Michigan has a great selection of trails and parks. Whether you're looking for a cool morning walk, a summer time swim or a chance to lace up your ice skates, the Mint City won't disappoint.
One of our favorite things to do is to take an evening bike ride downtown. If you can't make it to one of our favorite parks, another option is the Fred Meijer Clinton-Ionia-Shiawassee Trail. We even have a few bikes that you are welcome to use!
St Johns City Park
Since it's only a few blocks away from the Nordic Pineapple, a walk or bike ride to the St. Johns City Park should be a must on your list. The park is home to the annual St. Johns Mint Festival and Clinton County 4-H Fair, so make plans to stay with us in August!
Fun things to do:
Hike the wooded trails
Cool off at the spray park during the summer months
Bring the kids to play at Fantasy Forest (they'll love to stay in our Piglet Suite)
Play a round of disc golf
Enjoy a game tennis, basketball, softball volleyball
Have fun at the sledding hill or skate at the ice rink during the winter
Motz County Park
This park is truly a treasure for everyone who lives and visits St. Johns. Located only five miles north of our Inn, it's the perfect spot for a morning hike. The park is divided by Dewitt Rd, with a large lake and surrounding trail on each side making it the ideal spot for boating, swimming and picnics with the family.
Take a nine mile drive south of the Nordic Pineapple, you'll find yourself at one of the best State Parks in the state! The 2600 acre park surrounds Lake Ovid and offers something for everyone, no matter the season. View the Online Visitors Guide for maps, reservations, rentals and more!
